Strategic Due Diligence

SPI’s Due Diligence services are tailored to the needs of investors, lenders and companies in all space-related industry sectors.

Whether the objective is to invest, acquire, joint venture, team or otherwise, our team of legal, technical, business and risk management experts ask the key questions to properly frame the investment thesis with respect to the target considered, and then test its validity with a rigorous, comprehensive analysis and assessment across all relevant areas of diligence.

The result is to identify and confirm sources of value, synergies, and redundancies, as well as real or potential risks, and enable our clients to organize and prioritize their thinking regarding the transaction decision.
