The client was interested in the purchase of a technology company with headquarters in Europe. This potential acquisition was targeted to be the European hub for the Clients business expansion plans. In addition to the standard financial due diligence required, the client desired an operational and profitability assessment to determine a fair market price.

LoBue provided extensive business analysis outlining
While not specifically part of the contract focus LoBue uncovered critical Marketing, Sales, and Product deficiencies in the enterprise. Additionally, revenue was centered on 3 clients with no active pipeline for growth. This along with platform and productivity issues raised serious questions about the verasity of the acquisition.
Based on the LoBue Group assessment, the acquisition target price was modified to reflect risk in the sales and marketing functions and above average processing costs. Further review and analysis of the client base and client on-boarding costs by our client caused them to accept our recommendation to abandoned the acquisition.
