The Acquisition Due Diligence Process


Learn how you can minimize the risks of the transaction and enhance the advantages of the deal.

Mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies are a central component of business operations in America. They can be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive both for the acquiring company and the company acquired. They can result in disappointment for either party if serious or unanticipated events occur. The due diligence process is a crucial component for each party in the acquisition to know before you buy (or sell). This presentation is designed to assist both sides of the acquisition to focus on those issues which enhance each party's understanding of the transaction and reduce the risks of unwelcome surprises. Special attention, however, is given to the buy side.
