Aviation sector due diligence: commercial, transaction and asset


IBA's teams are practised in collating and delivering inclusive, critical quantitative and qualitative intelligence on an extensive range of aviation asset transactions within:


  • Commercial due diligence. We independently analyse the target's strategy and management, validating or contesting financial assumptions, competitive positioning and growth plans. We evaluate the market's attractiveness and potential risks and offer opinion on the target's reputation and management team


  • Vendor due diligence. IBA will collaborate with your accountants to scrutinise the complex risks and opportunities inherent in aviation, particularly aircraft. Formulating strategy in the context of aviation cycle direction, our teams devise experience- and evidence-based approaches to give assurance that asset values are secure and leasing strategies convincing


  • Operator due diligence. Using quantitative and qualitative research, our teams construct an accurate depiction of the target's capabilities. They assess ability to profitably manage a commercial fleet: acquiring and retaining business, maintaining records and certificates and controlling depreciating assets


  • IBA Valuations. IBA's independent Insight intelligence delivers absolute confidence that aircraft value and cost assumptions, including leasing cost expectations, are valid. You'll see a full picture of aircraft maintenance reserves, cash flow forecasts and aircraft return conditions.
