Due Diligence Case Study
Kreller provides corporate investigation services to assist companies and their internal ethics and corporate compliance officers in avoiding adverse transactions.
Due to the covert nature of the industry, client names are proprietary; however, the following case studies represent a cross section of international corporate investigations recently conducted on behalf of Kreller clients.
South America, Medical Manufacturing
A major medical device manufacturer engaged Kreller to investigate a potential new distributor. Kreller’s local investigator verified the potential distributor’s registration details and shareholding. Government exposure checks were conducted to ascertain any possible touch points with politically exposed individuals. None were found.
Reference checks determined the potential distributor maintained an excellent reputation within the business community. However, after a visit to the local court registry, it was determined the potential distributor had been recently indicted on charges of conspiring to fix prices within the local medical device market.
Had Kreller’s agent not physically reviewed these filings on the premises, this information would not have been uncovered. The medical device company was properly able to mitigate the circumstances due to Kreller’s thorough due diligence consulting.
