Around the globe, companies spend trillions of dollars on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) every year, but the failure rate is high. These transactions can represent a huge opportunity for your business in this new year. However, the bigger the reward, the bigger the risk. Protect your name, integrity, and money by knowing all you need to know before investing in an important corporate relationship. At CaptureINTEL, we conduct comprehensive M&A due diligence for our clients to set them up for future success in the long term.
Why M&A Due Diligence is Crucial for Your Business Transaction
By definition, M&A due diligence involves the verification, investigation, or audit of a possible deal or investment opportunity to confirm presented facts. Completing the due diligence process helps investors and businesses understand the overall nature of a deal, the potential risks involved, and whether the deal fits with their portfolio.
As a best practice, a due diligence investigation should be completed before a deal closes to give the buyer confidence in what they are getting. Significantly improve your chances of M&A success by being able to make informed decisions based on valuable intel.
There are several reasons why it is crucial to conduct M&A due diligence. This service can uncover if a company is:
- Legitimate with the credentials and services that it claims
- Involved in corruption or fraud
- A shell firm with no real staff or business purpose
- Subject to legal action, financial issues, or negative publicity
- Staffed with credible and experienced C-suite executives
Furthermore, M&A due diligence is beneficial for both buyers and sellers. If you are the seller, you can confirm the real market value of your company, which allows you to set realistic purchase price expectations. Additionally, you can obtain detailed and relevant information on the prospective buyer, which will help you decide if entering into the agreement would be beneficial on your end from a financial and a reputational perspective.
