Commercial & Operational Due Diligence
Providing buy-side and vendor due diligence.
Spécialistes de la distribution, nous allons au-delà du périmètre traditionnel des due diligence commerciales (marché, concurrents, clients, proposition) en intégrant tous les éléments d’une due diligence opérationnelle (gestion de produit, logistique, processus business, IT, emplacements magasin, online et autres canaux directs) aussi bien du point de vue du vendeur que de celui de l’acheteur.
Ceci permet une évaluation compréhensible des business plans et équipes de management de la cible ou des vendeurs. La spécialisation de notre équipe à travers toute la chaîne de valeur de la distribution, de l’achat en passant par le magasin jusqu’au client, nous permet de délivrer ce type d’approche différenciée.
Une due diligence récente a été faite pour Bowmark Capital sur l’acquisition de Drake & Morgan, pour Palamon sur l’acquisition de feelunique.com, et pour Livingbridge sur l’acquisition de Pho.

Javelin Group worked closely with us on a large discount retailer in the UK. Their work was of a high standard and they left no stone unturned during a rapid diligence process. Their specialist team were a real differentiator and produced a great result. Javelin Group was a pleasure to work with; responsive, articulate and fun. I would highly recommend them.
Andy Dawson, Director, Advent International.
Javelin Group did an excellent job in evaluating an investment opportunity in the food retail space. It was refreshing to work with a genuine specialist in this area, and their team of consultants who’d actually ‘been there and done it’ were able to offer us invaluable insight across a wide range of areas, including the target’s commercial proposition, the expansion opportunity, supply chain efficiency and IT adequacy. Combining retail expertise with well honed due diligence skills, Javelin Group was able to produce a comprehensive, robust and thoughtful review of the opportunity, which gave us the confidence to compete hard in the process.
Jamie Rivers, Partner, BC Partners.
When trying to determine which adviser to use for the commercial due diligence on Wiggle, the online-only cycle retailer, there was only one option: Javelin Group. Their multi- channel credentials meant they understood the challenges faced from all competition. Their diagnostic tools allowed us to assess Wiggle against best practice; their assessment of systems in general allowed us to measure scalability. Inevitably there were gaps in information but Javelin Group was able to adapt and redirect work to drive towards resolution of key commercial issues. They met a very tight timetable and we were able to invest with confidence.
Vince Gwilliam, Partner, Bridgepoint.
Javelin Group was invaluable in supporting our appraisal of a leisure sector investment. In a short period of time they helped us to answer a few targeted questions comprehensively. The litmus test is that their work will be used as an effective management tool going forward, and won’t just gather dust as some due diligence reports do.
Benoit Broch, Investment Director, Livingbridge.
This was our first experience with Javelin Group. We were operating under an extremely tight timetable to complete the transaction in a sector where obvious data points and market information was in short supply. Due to the deep retail expertise and experience of the Javelin Group team, we were provided with an extremely well-constructed report. Javelin Group used genuine innovation in the data around the report to allow us to understand the main drivers, risks and mitigating factors of the business we were looking to acquire. Javelin Group brought to life the potential of the business opportunity through use of data and really helped unlock the acquisition for us. We would not hesitate to use Javelin Group again.
Michael Burt, Partner, Promethean Investments.
Javelin Group’s retail experience was essential to understanding the dynamics of our target’s business. What also impressed us was the speed with which they understood the critical success factors of the business and its technology infrastructure. This deep understanding enabled them to produce a very challenging and valuable evaluation of our target’s growth plans.
