A private equity firm wanted to evaluate a potential investment in a gig-economy delivery platform that operated a white-label offering for grocery delivery.
Key diligence questions included:
- Validation of the market size and future growth
- Competitive landscape within target’s core geographies
- Target’s business model and typical unit economics
The GLG Approach
GLG assembled an engagement team of former commercial due diligence consultants from top-tier firms, along with a 25-year logistics and supply chain veteran executive who served as an advisor.
During the three-week effort, the GLG team facilitated:
- 20 expert interviews from the competitor and customer perspectives
- Desk research of company websites, industry reports, and press releases
GLG’s commercial due diligence team helped synthesize findings into an 80-page report outlining the target’s positioning based on industry growth prospects, competitive makeup, and unit economics moving forward.
