Our Due Diligence Service Eliminates Risks

Our team has performed due diligence on over 1,000 businesses since 2008. We’ve scaled several businesses to over 7 figures.

We know how to perform due diligence. We find the pros and cons of each acquisition to save you from making a mistake.

What’s Covered?

We perform a rigorous analysis of your SaaS business purchase. We deliver a written report outlining our findings with metrics to showcase the pros and cons of the asset.

Our analysis digs deep into these categories.

Market Overview

Most SaaS brands are based around a specific niche. We’ve analyzed SaaS businesses for sale in multiple different categories and understand the ins and outs when it comes to dealing with individual categories and market nuances. We look at:

Overall market size and trends

Product placement in the market

Potential market opportunities

Product Overview

Strong unit economics and a moat against competition help build durable long-lasting SaaS businesses. We look at:

Pricing structure

Defensibility against competition

Metrics review (churn, conversions, retention)

Marketing Overview

It’s critical to understand how much and from where the business is receiving traffic. SaaS has a natural churn cycle and thus new customers must be brought in to replace leaving customers. Here is what we look at:

Analysis of traffic location, metrics, and effectiveness

Website analysis for SEO

Benchmarks against competitors

Valuation

Valuation of SaaS businesses is based on a multiple of the Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE). Determining the valuation multiple is a critical factor that depends on the niche, market trends, trends, metrics, and more. We look for:

Evaluate asking price and multiple against market trends

Expert suggestions on what business is actually worth

P&L Verification

The valuation of the business is based on a multiple of past earnings. Our team has deep expertise in catching red flags in a P&L that do not match the actual earnings. We look for:

Verifying claimed revenues via screenshots or video

Verifying the seller’s P&L numbers against revenue screenshots

Verifying revenues against industry-standard averages

WebAcquisitions was fast, responsive, and most competitively priced. Turning around my report in only 5 days, they are one of the few firms that do a thorough SEO assessment as well as validating revenues. Mushfiq’s experience allowed us to catch things that weren’t on our radar.

WebAcquisition team performed a due diligence review of a content website we wanted to acquire from Empire Flipper’s brokerage. They reviewed everything related to the website and provided insights that have helped us make a decision. Recommended!

My consultation with WebAcquisition was very valuable and insightful. I was seeking feedback on potentially merging two sites into one and the conversation helped determine the best path forward, but also covered some other things like better monetization techniques. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced

Mushfiq and the team are experts and are always great to work with. Not only do they have a very quick turnaround on Due Diligence reports themselves (I’ve used them twice now for two successful purchases), Mushfiq is always available for follow-up questions. He is also extremely quick to respond. Would recommend.

I highly recommend WebAcquisition.
