Understanding M&A Technical Due Diligence

 

Understanding Mergers and Acquisition Due Diligence  – What should you do prior to an acquisition?

Are you comfortable that you have a comprehensive view of your acquisition target’s technical quality, scalability, risks, operational maturity, and OpEx/CapEx investments required?

In complex transactions (such as carveouts or divestiture of assets), careful technical due diligence and planning is required. Does your executive team have the right strategy, team, and plan in place to take the acquisition all the way through to the end? And, how will the acquisition impact your digital transformation efforts?

Given shareholder demands to produce high returns, PE-backed technology companies are often pressured to move faster than what is comfortable. Whether integrating/updating legacy assets, launching a new product build, integrating into a software platform eco-system, cloud transformation, or any major initiative, the effort required is usually massive.
