Case study

Tech DD for an enterprise investor intending to buy a SaaS platform

We assessed the risk of acquisition of a company providing SaaS solution for business analytics. The aim was to ensure that the acquired technology will meet the requirements of the potential acquisitor and its clients.

Background

The scope of this Tech Due Diligence was to assess the risk of acquisition of a SaaS platform for business analytics. The acquisitor needed to ensure that the technology developed by the acquired company will meet the requirements of its clients.

Assessment

Unicornly conducted interviews with the CTO and senior developers to recognize the areas for potential improvements and to reveal potential risks. The Due Diligence also included analysis of source code and other metrics.

The expertise revealed the vulnerabilities of architecture which turned out to be important for the platform in the long run. Despite the constantly ongoing minor improvements, the executive team did not develop a holistic plan for long-term increase of performance, maintainability and scalability. Moreover, the team did not use the accurate metrics to measure the effects and did not pay proper attention to analysis of the implemented changes.

Results

As a result of the assessment, Unicornly delivered 100-day plan for technical improvements in the systems’ architecture. The plan, in addition to tasks and deadlines, contained costs and risks analysis of required improvements. We also prepared a list of recommendations including key metrics to monitor in order to keep systems’ performance and maintainability at desirable levels in a long term.

Our findings were summarised in a final report, which was presented to the Board of Directors and supported their decision-making process regarding the potential acquisition.

Unicornly acted as a technical due diligence vendor on a transaction supporting our growth strategy. The team was extremely professional and flagged important issues. I would certainly recommend them to any company that is considering buying a tech-enabled business.
