Due Diligence in Business Transactions (Live Replay from April 4, 2023)

Thank you

Thank you for joining us today.

Description

Due diligence, often guided by lawyers, is essential to the success of major business transactions and poorly planned or conducted diligence can contribute to a buyer not getting the benefit of its bargain.

Diligence helps confirm essential assumptions about the value of a transaction and aids the discovery of unknown liabilities. There's also a subtle relationship between the content of diligence and the time allowed to conduct it. In more robust market environments, sellers have the upper hand and can limit diligence, making the process about time allocation and risk management.

This program provides a practical guide to planning the diligence process, understanding the most important areas of inquiry depending on the type of transaction, and review checklists.
