A global telecommunications firm was considering a transaction across multiple Asian countries. The client was concerned about a range of probity issues and the target company’s commitment to data privacy.
Veracity consulted human sources across the region to assess the provenance of licenses; labor, supply chain, and land-use practices; views of government and civil society stakeholders toward the deal; and the target’s IP practices.
Veracity uncovered credible corruption allegations and material shortcomings in the target’s handling of customer information that led the client
to adjust the valuation of the proposed transaction.
