France

An Israeli investment firm was hired to facilitate a joint venture between an Israeli company and a French aerospace firm. Prior to moving forward with the proposed venture, the investment firm first wanted a routine due diligence study performed on the company and its principals.

Working with investigators in France, Intelex completed a Corporate Profile on the company as well as Executive Profiles on its key management.

Intelex was able to provide the information necessary for its clients to proceed with the transaction with confidence. In addition, the information gathered by Intelex allowed the client to negotiate its terms from a position of strategic superiority.

Germany

A US investment bank, with offices in New York and San Francisco, was acting as the lead underwriter in an IPO of a German microchip company that was developing smart card technology. Intelex was retained to perform a routine due diligence study on the company.

Intelex performed a Corporate Profile on the company and Executive Profiles on each of the company’s principals located in Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

After a thorough review of the company and its principals, Intelex found no red flags that would warrant interrupting the proposed IPO. The company went public with great success.

Ireland

A professional golf course management company was looking to hire a key executive from Ireland. They contacted Intelex to screen the candidate first to avoid potential problems later.

Intelex worked with the client to determine an appropriate scope for the Pre-Employment Screening and then went to work vetting the candidate.

Intelex was able to determine that there were no “red flags” as far as the candidate was concerned, and the client was able to hire him with confidence.

Liechtenstein

A group of entrepreneurs contacted Intelex regarding a matter they believed to be fraud. An individual claiming to be able to buy foreign letters of credit at a sizable discount approached various entrepreneurs in need of financing. The entrepreneurs were told that if they put up $250,000 each, they would be able to see a 100 to 200 percent return on their investment. With nowhere else to turn for financing, the entrepreneurs mortgaged homes and borrowed from relatives until they had enough money to put into the scheme. Once the realized that they were not going to get any money back, they hired Intelex to investigate.

Intelex first built a dossier on the individual making the false claims and found him to be a convicted felon in Canada. Intelex immediately launched an asset investigation which brought its operators to the banking centers of Luxembourg and Liechtenstein.

By tracing assets in the United States, Canada, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein, the clients were able to secure a judgment against those involved in the fraud. In addition, Intelex has worked with the Justice Department in its investigation and eventual prosecution of those involved in the scam.

United Kingdom

A New York investment house was asked to raise funds for a newly formed British venture capital firm. Before the investment house would agree to a deal, they first wanted an expanded due diligence study done on the British firm and its principals.

Since the venture firm was brand new, Intelex focused its efforts on the firm’s principals, compiling Executive Profiles on each member of the executive team.

Intelex was able to provide detailed histories on each member profiled. These profiles not only showed that there were no major red flags for the individuals being researched, they also uncovered serious derogatory information on another individual with the same name (and in the same industry) as one of the principals. Having this information in hand allowed the client to move forward with the fund raising while heading off any potential problems that might have occurred through mistaken identity.
