Due diligence requires investigation, audit, and review of financial and other critical records.


Due Diligence

For a transaction to be successful, be it a joint venture, merger or an acquisition, it is imperative that it goes through a comprehensive Due Diligence process. Due diligence requires investigation, audit, and review of financial and other critical records. This is necessary to confirm the facts of a matter under consideration.

Scope of due diligence depends on the size & scale of a transaction

The appropriate value of the transaction or probability of major issues or potential issues is thus identified. Due diligence cannot be conducted using available public information. The scope of due diligence depends on the size and scale of a transaction and the risks that surround it.

Due diligence is a financial and operational health check conducted in any transaction such as a merger or an acquisition. M&A requires a significant amount of due diligence by the buyer. Before committing to the transaction, the buyer must know what they are buying, the obligations to be assumed, the nature and extent of the seller’s contingent liabilities, problematic contracts, litigation risks, intellectual property issues, and much more.

In terms of private company acquisitions, the need for due diligence is high due to the company not being under the scrutiny of the public market.

A company wishes to expand their current portfolio of products and services through the acquisition of new ones.
