Private equity, venture capital, and development finance institutions (DFIs) all share the same concern of overpaying for assets in local enterprises. Foreign investors seeking to access the region are alarmed by the absence of reputable data pools from which to derive an accurate assessment.

Deloitte observed that the majority of investors seeking to deploy capital in the East African region have raised worries about the quality of assets, the reasonableness of their valuation asking prices, and the equity of market pricing.

In addition, the consulting firm outlined a number of factors that have lost the East African region billions of dollars in potential investment capital.
“Principal obstacles encountered during due diligence include tight deadlines, inadequacy in the finance function’s skills, and poor quality financial information. Inadequate due diligence carries the danger of an inaccurate estimate of the target’s ability to continue as a going concern, resulting in an uninformed merger or acquisition. Deloitte said.
