Due diligence: a multinational medical/healthcare supply company sought to contract with a potential partner in Egypt. The company engaged CRI® Group’s due diligence services to ensure that there were no regulatory or reputational problems associated with the outside group, and sought information regarding their track record, integrity and reputation. While researching the potential partner, investigators found a lack of information among corporate registration authorities, the local chamber of commerce or other resources to confirm that the company was who they claimed to be.
Research showed no physical locations – in fact, the main address claimed by the company was found to be a residential site with no indication of business operations. This FREE ebook examines the lessons learned from this case study and what to do to protect your business if you find yourself in similar situations.
