Operational Due Diligence
In the perspective of a merger or an acquisition, we check the existence and extent of potential risks and opportunities. Beyond what is known, we are looking for the invisibles.
In order to meet the legal obligations that govern international business life, we make every effort to identify the ultimate beneficiaries, PPE and other sensitive elements during operations carried out internationally.
A search for assets, traces of transactions or hidden beneficiaries must be launched?
We have privileged accesses and work on these subjects together with our partners.

Examples of missions we achieved
A North American hotel management corporation engaged in negotiations for the acquisition of a multi-island boutique resort company in the South Pacific, called upon Cristal Group International to perform an in-depth due diligence on the European owner and founder.
This mission also addressed reported controversies pertaining to estate inheritance, land ownership, environmental and local political issues.
A leading European company in a niche sector of the food industry faced with a change of local shareholders in their Russian subsidiary requested a detailed personal research on the proposed new investors, with a specific focus on any close business and/or political ties that could impact of the group’s compliance policy.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ASSET SEARCH
In its acquisition process of a Californian subcontractor, a Hong-Kong based video-game developer needs to identify every foreign patent issued and trademark owned. As an independent third party, Cristal Group International has been appointed to establish the exhaustive lists of every intellectual property registered in the USA.
A UK-based corporation planning on acquiring a controlling stake in a Caribbean-based mining venture, commissioned Cristal Group International to conduct a thorough assessment of the ownership history as well as of the past and present modus operandi of that company.
This was coupled with an investigation into the country’s mining sector with a specific emphasis on government arbitrary, interference and corruption.
In addition, all risks linked to environmental advocacy were duly analyzed.
