  • General Due Diligence — a comprehensive review of the main aspects of the company's activities, including financial condition, taxation, legal aspects, management, company's market share, etc.
  • Financial Due Diligence — review of financial condition of the company, including assets and liabilities in terms of their assessment (off-balance sheet liabilities, impairment of inventories, etc.)
