Bill Dupee, CPA

Director, Private Equity and Transaction Advisory Services | M&A advisor | EBITDA and financial due diligence expert


Who I work with

My clients include Private Equity team members from partners and managing directors to analysts, as well as VPs of Corporate Development and CFOs of Corporate Strategics. I advise clients on both buy-side and sell-side due diligence and post-merger integration on deals in the $2m- $500m range.

My specialty

I am fanatical about helping clients find deal-breakers, manage transaction risks and maximize return on investment. My industry expertise includes manufacturing, distribution, consumer products, software, retail and professional services.

Call me a nerd, but I enjoy calculating EBITDA and evaluating quality of earnings to support transaction analysis and purchase price negotiations. My specialties also include pre-and post-close working capital considerations, quality of net assets analysis and divisional carve-out considerations.

I help clients overcome challenges, the most common of which include:

  • Scaling diligence to deal size to control cost
  • Providing cost-effective QoE and WC analysis in a tight timeline
  • Planning and executing transactions to maximize value

Some unique things about me

  • I found one client a $1 million refund for over payment on a post-transaction shared services agreement.
  • I have worked with over 35 private equity firms on over 120 transactions.
  • I identified a $950,000 inventory accounting issue resulting in a $5 million purchase price reduction on behalf of my client.

What I do when I am not at work

I am the Treasurer of my favorite charity Rebecca’s Tent Woman’s Shelter. I am also a “Double Dawg” and avid Georgia Bulldogs fan!

People say that I am

Always cool under pressure, I am outcome focused and detail oriented. I am passionate about providing greater information transparency and reducing risk in the transaction process.
