Digital Due Diligence

Evaluation of Your Target Business With a Digital Due Diligence

As one of the first inventors of digital due diligence 10 years ago, OMMAX developed a thorough methodology for investors planning to buy or sell a company. We assess the target company’s digital presence and digital revenue and analyze the potential to drive digital sales and EBITDA. With 200+ deals, >€15.5B deal value and 700+ value creation projects for leading private equity clients, we are the leading European digital transaction advisory performing digital due diligence.

A digital due diligence provided by OMMAX will uncover many findings that would not have been picked up by a traditional commercial due diligence. You will find out about the target company´s digital organization, the extent of digital demand within the market, the online penetration of the products/services, as well as the digital visibility of the target company benchmarked with core competitors. We also analyze the paid/non-paid marketing performance, the digital sales performance, the digital customer journey, and other important aspects which provide our clients with best-in-class digital insights.
