M&A Due Diligence Best Practices

Date: Thursday, August 13, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Conducting effective due diligence within an M&A transaction extends far beyond functional checklists which categorize questions and data requests by department. Equally important is validating and verifying the planning activities which led up to the transaction to ensure that the transaction meets its planned goals.

In this webinar, you will learn how to effectively manage a due diligence process which will mitigate downside risks while optimizing the anticipated synergies. The webinar will provide you with tools and techniques for framing effective due diligence activities, in addition to providing direction for developing functional checklists.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Acquire due diligence techniques and best practices which will maximize your organization’s ability to achieve the intended goals of the acquisition.
Explore how to best manage internal and external due diligence resources.
Recognize when to walk away from a transaction – determination, and managing buyer and seller expectations.
