Due Diligence Case Study
The following case studies represent our work as a due diligence investigation company.
Due to the covert nature of the industry, client names are proprietary; however, the following case study represents a cross section of international investigations recently conducted on behalf of Kreller clients.
A client in the technology sector engaged Kreller to conduct an investigation on a potential supplier in China. The client’s initial database screening presented no adverse findings; however, the client had heard a rumor that the company had significant government affiliations. Therefore, the client asked Kreller to conduct an in-country investigation on the company.
A local registration check revealed that the potential supplier presented inaccurate shareholding information in their questionnaire. Subsequent research of the true shareholders not only revealed significant political affiliations, it also uncovered court records which indicated that the principal had been recently convicted of tax evasion and falsification of official records. The client disengaged from further discussions with this potential supplier.
