Conference on July 11th - 12th, 2019

Due diligence is a critical step in the M&A process. In today’s competitive marketplace, a single bidder rarely outsmarts the rest of the field. Rather, the justification to pay more than other bidders must be based on the ability to create more value with the acquisition. Superior insights about the target can alter the valuation in either direction either ensuring a win or a rejection of an offer. Value creation is more likely if the purchaser has a greater understanding of the target company, and a clear and explicit plan for merger integration and value capture.


Many companies approach due diligence as a financial exercise; but capturing value in the merged entity mostly depends on non-financial issues. Consequently, this requires two things: deep industry knowledge to project revenue synergies, and deep functional knowledge to identify, assess, and validate operational cost improvements.
