Russia Raw Materials Investment Due Diligence

A multinational manufacturer of industrial goods sought expansion opportunities in Russia and identified an attractive acquisition target. The Russian company was viewed by industry insiders as a “major player” who could provide the client with expansive access to the Russian market.

Drawing on discreet sourcing from a variety of industry contacts, TAG alerted the client that the company relied on an outdated and weak infrastructure. For TAG’s client to extract the synergies it sought, significant capital expenditure might be required to bring the target’s operating systems and equipment up to date.
