Case Study 1

A client listed a corporate due diligence search with us on the management team of their target company. All of the team had been with the company for several years, and the background search seemed to be a necessary nuisance. The preliminary findings on the company president found several judgments and liens in another state from 15 years ago. He also had two DWI convictions in more recent years. After immediately notifying the client, we searched the additional state jurisdiction and provided very detailed information on all the civil and criminal lawsuits.

Case Study 2

A client trusted CaptureINTEL to conduct a corporate due diligence background check on a potential independent contractor. This contractor would have extensive exposure with the public at this company, and it was critical to assure the client that the contractor could not damage their brand. The corporate due diligence investigation uncovered several lawsuits and financial issues, but more importantly, the contractor’s claim of having an undergrad degree and a master’s degree in the specialized field were never earned. Both were misrepresented, as well as the licensed credentials the contractor claimed to have, which were not valid.

Case Study 3

A client engaged CaptureINTEL to conduct a corporate due diligence investigation on a potential contractor. The contractor would provide training within the client’s facility and work with the client’s guests and members. The client is a well-respected business and did not want to associate with anyone who could jeopardize their reputation. During the investigation, we identified a DWI case, 11 civil cases, including debts owed to several creditors, and child support actions by more than one person. Other liens and judgments were found as well. The contractor had also falsely stated that they obtained education and licensing related to this field.

The risk and liability for the client were high since they could have been responsible for any injuries or damages associated with this contractor’s services. The client ultimately determined the contractor was not a good fit based on poor character.

Case Study 4

A client was investing in an organization that provides non-bank lending services. They entrusted CaptureINTEL to conduct corporate due diligence on the four-person leadership team, as well as the parent company and a few related businesses. After our initial investigation, we found that two of the companies had former names and a different legal name than their trade name. Utilizing these findings, we were able to dig deep into the companies and make sure we uncovered all the facts. The industry is very litigious, so there were several cases to examine for all current and former names. We also found some media that concerned the client, but the information in the news article ultimately helped to outline some deal terms since there was an impending risk identified.
