Mergers, Acquisitions & Investments

CareerBuilder Investigations FirstStep® reports are an integral part of any merger, acquisition or partnership. Due diligence investigations provides an in-depth look into the litigation, financial, and media history of both a company, and its executives.

The information provided in FirstStep® reports can uncover:

  • conflicts of interest by identifying the corporate affiliations of the executives
  • sanctions and violations levied by regulators such as FINRA and the SEC
  • derogatory reporting  and "bad press" through Internet and media investigations
  • a history of litigation filed by and against the company or its executives
  • criminal backgrounds and other "character issues" of the executives

CareerBuilder Investigations FirstStep® reports are completed by investment groups during the vetting process to mitigate unnecessary use of time and capital in more comprehensive due diligence programs. Before engaging in a transaction, let CareerBuilder Investigations' team research the information you need when proceeding through the acquisition process.

CareerBuilder Investigations leverages several proprietary data sources along with the experience and knowledge of our staff to deliver reliable results.

401(k) Locates

A common frustration for Human Resource departments is mailing out benefits statements after an employee has left the company. Compliance requirements may require attempting to find 401(k) or SEP plan participants who are no longer employed with the company. This can be particularly important when plan changes are made. The process becomes even more frustrating when the former employees have moved or relocated and the mailings come back "Undeliverable". CareerBuilder Investigations offers a solution to simplify this process.

CareerBuilder Investigations' 401(k) Locates are a simple way to track down addresses for past employees. This tool works by providing an address history for the individual with their most recent verified address listed at the top. With this new address information, your Statements of Benefits, Plan Change Notifications and other required mailings can be sent with confidence.
