Transaction Support

Transaction Support & Due Diligence

We provide solutions to help our clients achieve value from their corporate and real estate transactions.

Corporate and Real Estate transactions can be complex and may exhibit wide ranging environmental and socio-economic risk profiles. Whether acquiring, divesting, merging or managing an asset the implications of these risk profiles may have an impact on value, business sustainability and in some instances the success or failure of the transactional activity.

At Delta-Simons we seek to design solutions that combine technical excellence with commercial awareness that are delivered in transparent language to reflect our client’s business needs and help them achieve value from all aspects of the transactional process.

Services we offer

Environmental Due Diligence (EDD)

As part of the formal process within a transaction to understand the implications of potential ground contamination from historical or current activities, we seek to communicate the risks and opportunities inherent in the due diligence process through dataroom review, site assessments and targeted interviews. We strive to provide clear commercial and financial advice including liability/cost estimates, assessment of the adequacy of existing provisions and provision of input into financial modelling, based upon a strong technical understanding and ability.

Divestiture Planning

As part of the formal process within a transaction to understand the implications of potential ground contamination from historical or current activities, we seek to communicate the risks and opportunities inherent in the due diligence process through dataroom review, site assessments and targeted interviews. We strive to provide clear commercial and financial advice including liability/cost estimates, assessment of the adequacy of existing provisions and provision of input into financial modelling, based upon a strong technical understanding and ability.

Environmental Compliance Audits

Legal compliance, whether this be state regulations or local permitting, ordinances or codes is a fundamental part of governance activities. Delta-Simons undertakes environmental compliance audits on behalf of our clients to identify whether such legal obligations are being met. Audits are also focused on operational aspects of a company/site, rather than the contamination status of the real property.

As part of due diligence activities, or proactive asset management, we seek to  reduce our client’s risks of non-compliance and prevent incidents before they occur.

Site Investigation

When desk-based activities identify unacceptable risk, it is sometimes necessary to conduct intrusive investigation works to provide comfort and surety during the transactional process. Delta-Simons work closely with our clients to advise what level of investigation is necessary or possible during typical due diligence timescales to ensure that requirements fit with business needs. Fast track investigations and short form reports can be provided, while assistance in negotiating retention monies and completing works post-transaction can also be arranged.

Client Specific Risk Management Strategies

We have developed a suite of services and products that allow different levels of detail, from red flag screening reports, through to detailed asset management reports that set out how risks and non-compliance issues can be mitigated and managed through the ownership cycle. We work with our clients to ensure that the ultimate products reflect their business needs, with the objective of providing clear guidance and action on environment, social or governance issues that lead to increased asset value. 

Information & Asset Management Systems

At Delta-Simons we understand that our client’s primary aim is to realize value from assets and part of that process is to maintain or improve the environmental condition of that asset through the ownership lifecycle.

Due diligence represents the beginning and end of the ownership lifecycle and accumulates information concerning the asset. The use of information and management systems allows prioritization of risks and budgets to deal with environmental concerns over a timescale that suits our client’s business needs.

Delta-Simons seek to work with our clients from the earliest opportunity to build the information audit trail for an asset, whether this be simple red flag reporting through to bespoke information management systems. The aim for all processes is the same, which is to identify risks, prioritize action, manage and record activities to mitigate or improve environmental conditions and demonstrate improved asset value.

Remedial & Corrective Action

Due diligence will sometimes identify an asset with an environmental condition that presents a material risk or financial consideration that cannot be ignored.

At Delta-Simons we seek to work with our clients to ensure that where possible such risks do not prevent the successful completion of the transaction.

For divestment scenarios, the production and use of management and corrective action plans, with concise understanding of material issues, supported by robust cost plans, can avoid undue discussion on ground risk issues.

In acquisition or investment scenarios working with all stakeholders to agree the most suitable remedial plan can avoid a breakdown in the transaction process.

As part of active asset management, the development and implementation of remedial and corrective action plans can avoid undue focus on environmental conditions during due diligence and maximise asset value, whilst also demonstrating pragmatic environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
