Vendor Due Diligence

Vendor due diligence is an in-depth report on the financial health of a company that is being sold. It provides vendors with greater control over the sale process and the timing of sale, which can, in turn, help secure a higher price for the business.

Vendor due diligence (VDD) is a different term for sell-side due diligence. It is similar to buy-side due diligence but is originated by the seller. Hence, it is often also called sell-side due diligence. In the end, it is a full and independent review of a company before it will come up for sale. In the past, this used to be done by each buyer independently. However, over the last few years, sellers have learned it can be useful to do their own due diligence on their company. By doing VDD, the seller learns a lot about their company. Vendor due diligence can be described as the investigation and analysis of the seller’s company. A strong focus is on the financial business drivers that determine the future results. For this reason, the investigation can help with increasing the sales price for the company. In practice, most often the people that do the vendor due diligence also defend and explain the due diligence performed to the buyers.
