Market Entry Due Diligence & Intelligence Investigation

Audere International was mandated by an international airline to conduct deep-dive due diligence and intelligence gathering on potential local partners in Pakistan.

Despite lobbying to the Government of Pakistan from London and Islamabad, the airline remained unsighted on credible local companies for security, ground handling and cargo.

Using a pre-determined due diligence criteria, Audere narrowed down the potential partner options before instigating in-depth intelligence enquiries into the relevant sectors, the short-list of potential contenders, their shareholders, directors and political linkages.

Audere’s findings and recommendations, combined with advice on tactics to deter undue vested interests, contributed to the airlines successful and uncontroversial landing in Pakistan.

“Audere International were critical to our success in determining the provision of a local security partner in Pakistan, as well as a preferred cargo and ground handling service agent.  We received numerous approaches and suggestions from Pakistani companies, several were motivated by political as well as vested self-interest. Audere provided valuable intelligence gathering and deep-dive due diligence which ultimately enabled us to independently and objectively clarify the options.  Audere’s contribution was a significant factor in facilitating our ultimate decisions and awarding contract”.
