Our clients know the Cybertrace difference
We are a high-end Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), due diligence service provider, enhancing deals to convert high-risk situations into high-growth prospects that assist clients in obtaining the best deal. By combining an extensive M&A and Executive Diligence overview with a thorough comprehension of the value at risk, we provide accurate results quickly, offering clarity through complexity, so clients can make confident decisions to buy, sell, or hold.
We do not merely offer our clients automated, machine-generated data that may or may not provide valuable insights. Although we do utilise AI technology to enhance results, we firmly believe that automated products have limitations and may overlook important details. There are certain information gaps that only a human can bridge, and that is where our team excels.

We specialise in collecting and identifying cyber intelligence, including products such as online harassment, cyber fraud, and M&A Due Diligence, among others.

Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) transactions are typically complicated and long-term in nature, involving significant value. It is crucial that both the buyer and seller have a complete understanding of all the obligations, risks, liabilities, and opportunities involved in the M&A process before finalising the transaction. Our M&A Due Diligence services cover all regions of the world, including USA, UK and Australia. We have developed a strong and reliable network of partners and suppliers to ensure the process is fast and consistent.
However, most M&A deals are conducted privately, which can limit the availability of important information regarding the commercial, financial, legal, and administrative aspects of the parties involved. This poses a significant challenge, as the viability of a potential merger or acquisition depends heavily on the quality of information that informs the decision to proceed.
To make informed decisions based on a comprehensive understanding of potential risks and opportunities, it is necessary to have access to complete information and insights. Our global services, provided through a network of professional data and service suppliers, ensure that Due Diligence processes are completed effectively, regardless of location.
Our team of experts offers Executive Due Diligence services, especially given the current competitive and growing unemployment landscape. Executives may make fraudulent representations during interviews, such as falsifying credentials, omitting prior criminal convictions or regulatory breaches, or providing false reasons for leaving a previous employer. Properly vetting these candidates can avoid potential embarrassment, and negligent hiring litigation, and protect the employer or investor.
Our analysts use Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques to uncover information buried deep in the web, including social media. Our thorough Executive Due Diligence process identifies relevant issues in an executive’s professional and personal history to safeguard prospective employers and investors. We assess an executive’s social media presence to identify any content that may damage a company’s reputation.

Executive Due Diligence
Given the current competitive and growing unemployment landscape, executive-level candidates are more willing to make overt misrepresentations that can be uncovered during the executive due diligence (background check) process. Executives may make representations during the interview, such as embellishing or falsifying credentials, omitting prior criminal or regulatory convictions, or providing false circumstances concerning their departure from a prior employer. The challenge for corporate directors and management teams is to avoid potential embarrassment and negligent hiring litigation by properly vetting these candidates prior to making hiring decisions. Likewise, investors, bankers, and venture capitalists share an interest in truly knowing who they are potentially investing in. Unfortunately, many investors only consider ‘what’ not ‘who’ when conducting due diligence for imminent investments.
By conducting thorough Executive Due Diligence, our analysts can identify relevant issues concerning an executive’s professional career and personal history. This in turn protects the prospective employer or investor. Executive Due Diligence may form a key component of the overall Mergers & Acquisitions process, or it may be a standalone product, depending on your needs and budget.
Cybertrace Global are experts in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques and can uncover information buried deep in the web, including on social media. Often, individuals publish photos and content on social media with little regard for their potential audience. Unfortunately, the content has the potential to embarrass an employer or investor and damage a company’s reputation. Our techniques for assessing an executive’s social media will uncover any relevant content of concern.
Investing in a company goes beyond the technology or concept; it involves believing in the management team’s ability to turn the idea into a profitable business.
Cybertrace possesses an extensive network of skilled researchers, analysts, and professional investigators who operate in every major financial and business centre around the world.
Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) due diligence is a complex process that requires a thorough evaluation of various aspects of the target company, including supplier risk.
To assess the team’s potential for success, it’s crucial to have an unbiased understanding of their management style. Our reports reveal various factors that could impact the team’s effectiveness, such as Non-Disclosure of Material Facts, Resume Fraud, Criminal & Civil Litigation, Judgments & Liens, Bankruptcies, Corporate Affiliations, Global Sanction issues, Comprehensive Media Research, General Cyber Footprint, Conflicts of Interest, Survey of Past Allegations, and Lifestyle Assessments. However, our clients engage us for our methodology rather than our search criteria. We recognise that Procedural Risk and Reputational Risk can be more costly than Subject Risk, and our process safeguards our clients on all fronts.
We are capable of providing investigative due diligence, business intelligence, and background information on virtually any business entity, organization, or business sector, both domestically and internationally. By conducting thorough inquiries beforehand, companies can ensure that they are making the right business decision. In some cases, our team may uncover information that will prompt you to withdraw from a pending transaction. However, in other instances, the information provided will aid you in structuring a more appropriate deal or negotiating a transaction more effectively. Typically, our team provides you with the information necessary to complete a transaction with confidence.
The integration of these reports not only frees up your staff so that they may focus on making investments, but also provides a professional level of due diligence that reduces your liability, presents you with an objective third-party view of a target company, and helps to secure your professional reputation.
Supplier risk refers to the potential for financial or operational disruptions caused by suppliers or partners. Understanding supplier risk is crucial as it enables acquirers to evaluate the financial impact of a potential M&A deal and assess the target company’s overall operational resilience.
The evaluation of supplier risk includes a comprehensive assessment of suppliers’ financial and operational health, their compliance with regulations, and their ability to fulfill their obligations to the target company. Acquirers need to analyze the supplier’s business continuity plans, their level of dependency on certain suppliers, and the presence of any legal or reputational issues that could impact the target company.
Supplier risk is relevant to M&A due diligence because it enables acquirers to identify potential risks and opportunities. For instance, if a target company has a high level of supplier risk, the acquirer may negotiate for better terms and conditions to mitigate the risk. On the other hand, if the target company has a diversified supplier base with low supplier risk, the acquirer may leverage this advantage to gain a competitive edge.
A thorough evaluation of supplier risk is crucial for acquirers during M&A due diligence. It enables them to make informed decisions and better understand the target company’s financial and operational resilience. With this information, acquirers can mitigate risks, negotiate better terms, and ultimately achieve a successful M&A deal.
M&A Due Diligence
Providers of Corporate Intelligence
In today’s uncertain economic climate, it is crucial to conduct comprehensive Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Due Diligence before taking on any financial or business risks. However, not all Due Diligence services are created equal.
Most people leave a digital footprint of some kind, and we specialize in searching social media and the deep web to uncover any relevant information about individuals, places, or things for both commercial and personal purposes. Our Cyber Investigations are discreet and require no contact with the target, which is a significant advantage.
Our reports cover a wide range of areas related to an individual, including:
- Identifying an individual’s assets
- Conducting due diligence for corporate mergers and acquisitions
- Protecting brand and reputation
- Conducting background checks
- Providing commercial intelligence
- Supporting traditional private investigations
- Gaining a competitive edge by knowing your competitors and their activities
- Many Due Diligence products fall short of providing detailed information on individuals and companies because the provider lacks the expertise and resources necessary to uncover their cyber footprint. Business intelligence analysts may also be unable to offer in-depth information about individuals, including their risks. With years of experience in intelligence gathering and analysis, we have the knowledge and skills to obtain the necessary information.
Don’t take any risks! Entrust the intelligence and evidence gathering to the professionals and contact us today for a confidential consultation regarding your requirements.
