Bioindustry Transactions and Due Diligence
We are the leading advisor to the bioindustry – from forests through sawnwood, panels, biofuels, bioproducts pulp, paper, packaging, tissue to printing, and all its stakeholders. AFRY's sector focused expertise is uniquely positioned, supported by both engineering and investment banking teams.
Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of transactions across the bio-industry. Due diligence is one of the most important aspects of a transaction, providing an understanding of the value of the business, its outlook and key risks. There are a number of forms of due diligence such as financial, legal, environmental. AFRY Management Consulting provides both commercial and technical due diligence to the sectors where it is focused. This builds on AFRY's unparalleled experience in these areas.
Commercial due diligence provide the potential buyer with a robust understanding of the market (supply and demand), pricing, competitive environment and customer positioning. Technical due diligence includes cost competitiveness, technical review, capex evaluation, efficiency assessments, personnel review and improvement potential. When integrating with another company then AFRY also provides full post-merger integration (PMI) services.
Investment banking capabilities are provided by a separate business, Pöyry Capital, which is the investment banking arm of the AFRY Group. There are multiple cases where Pöyry Capital work in conjunction with AFRY Management Consulting, and multiple cases where the two business units do not work on the same mandates.
