Short Methodology

The wine merger and acquisition due diligence report is prepared using WMStrategy's proven research methodology. It includes a blend of qualitative and quantitative data. The market information comes from official sources and includes insights from at least 20 market experts (representatives of the main market participants), gathered through semi-structured interviews.

The wine M&A due diligence project goes through two main stages. The first step involves a tailor-made questionnaire. It will gather essential information about the buy-side and sell-side companies to support the development of the due diligence process framework. The second stage presents a detailed analysis of the target business to identify and address potentially significant areas of loss, liability, and potential areas of improvement.

A crucial component of the methodology is the consumer behavior survey. It is an indispensable tool for monitoring customer perception, sentiment, preference, and behavior. The wine M&A due diligence report includes a survey with 250 respondents, who align with the target audience profile. The survey methodology utilizes precision targeting to identify and engage respondents who closely match the profile of the target audience. Depending on your requirements, a survey with a larger sample of respondents can be commissioned and you can directly ask your target audience specific questions to get verified insights.

The approach also includes an in-depth financial analysis, which is built on carefully researched data. It will provide insight into the financial status of the target company and support your decision-making process on whether the reviewed strategic partnership is appropriate. The classic valuation method of discounted cash flow (DCF) is utilized. In the process, some key financial indicators are developed to measure the expected financial effects of the consolidation. The collected data is then applied in the analysis of the main business strategies, maximizing the synergies of a potential integration with the target company.
