We recently had the pleasure of working with Elliott on a Quality of Earnings (QoE) report for an acquisition we closed in 2021. Elliott's expertise and dedication to the project were instrumental in providing the necessary insights to complete the deal successfully. The QoE report delivered by Elliott not only provided proof of cash and a comprehensive trailing twelve-month balance sheet but also assisted us in creating the documents required for SBA approval. His work went beyond our expectations and his in-depth analysis made a significant impact on our decision-making process. One of the best aspects of Elliott's service was his hands-on approach and his willingness to share insights beyond the financial aspects of the deal. He was always available to provide valuable advice and his attention to detail was unmatched. Over the course of the project, we even became friends, which speaks to the strong working relationship we developed. Elliott's experience and guidance were essential in navigating the complexities of the acquisition. He went beyond simply providing a QoE, offering his extensive knowledge to help us handle the ups and downs of the deal. His advice not only gave us the confidence in where to push back, but also how to push back effectively. Working with Elliott was an exceptional experience. His expertise, dedication, and personalized service were invaluable throughout the entire process. We wholeheartedly recommend Elliott to anyone in need of a QoE report or financial consultation for an acquisition.

Elliott brings a wealth of experience as an acquisition entrepreneur himself and is therefore very "street smart" about the small details that make all the difference in a transaction. I would highly recommend Guardian Due Diligence.

I have worked with Elliott for a decade, and he has never ceased to amaze me with his financial aptitude and talent around deal structuring, financial risk mitigation, and maximization of upside. I have worked on projects with Elliott where he single handedly saved investors, myself included, millions of dollars through realistic financial dissection of enterprises.

I recently completed due diligence on the acquisition of a $7M manufacturing company with the help of Elliott and his team at Guardian Due Diligence. For a deal of this size and nature, there are no better or more cost-effective options out there. I would not hesitate to work with GDD again in the future.

I engaged Elliott to conduct a Quality of Earnings for a unique deal marked by a recent owner transition. Unfortunately, the new owner faced an urgent need to sell the business due to medical reasons shortly after acquisition, introducing significant complexity to our due diligence process. Limited access to critical information from the previous seller further compounded the challenge. What distinguished Elliott in this engagement was his ability to navigate and adapt to these constraints. He demonstrated exceptional problem-solving skills, creatively bridging gaps in our data. His guidance and critical thinking instilled a high level of confidence in me in pursuing this deal.

I engaged the service of Guardian Due Diligence when working on the acquisition of a recycling business in the U.A.E. The QoE process Elliott spearheaded made me ponder deeply on questions I might have glossed over and also brought out unique insights on the business. Elliott was very hands on throughout the entire process and I appreciated his candor when providing his thoughts on the business.

Our company TTI worked with Guardian Due Diligence over the course of 18 months on several projects. The team brought exceptional service and expertise throughout the entire due diligence process. In addition they offered advice on corporate strategy and financial management. Looking forward to working with the team again.

Elliott helps buyers ensure they’re making good decisions on deals. My recommendation has always been, if you’re going to spend this much money buying a business, using a due diligence company is a must.

The Guardian team stepped into our process towards the end of our Due Diligence period for a Mechanical HVAC acquisition. Our group was particularly concerned about key employee retention and how that would impact the business's transition. Guardian exposed certain downside scenarios that we did not initially uncover during our Due Diligence period. Perhaps most importantly, their analysis gave us the confidence to walk away from the deal after months of negotiations. I am particularly thankful for Elliott Holland's focus on capital preservation, reminding our team that the best deal may be the one you walk away from.

Amazing job and Value Added! I can not overstate the value of doing a quality of cash and quality of earnings on a small business deal. Elliott and his team are extremely detailed and didn't miss a single thing and I'm happy that I spent the money. The seller actually reduced their price by 1.5M after going over the reports. That is the value.

You know, I never got a great feeling from those guys on that deal. I have to be honest though -- you saved my ass on that one. You really helped me justify my sixth sense.
