Course Overview

Buying and selling a business can be a very risky step to undertake, with over half of all transactions failing. Carrying out proper due diligence is the most effective way to reduce that risk and to improve your chances of a successful transaction.
Due diligence should help businesses add value to their new acquisitions. As well as simply checking things out it should be structured to help businesses make better development decisions.
Often thought of as boring, expensive and time consuming, due diligence gives answers to crucial questions. How can you be sure you are buying the company you think you are? How do you avoid unexpected costs and nasty surprises? How do you negotiate the best deal? Due Diligence in Mergers and Acquisitions will help newcomers quickly get to grips with this complex area, learning what to look out for and what to avoid.
Despite being one of the most important steps of the process of acquisition, due diligence is frequently misunderstood and mishandled. This course aims to change that.

Due Diligence in Mergers and Acquisitions enables the learner to:

  • Master the practical aspects of due diligence, including how to best out of the process through planning and selecting the right advisers
  • Recognise the importance of integration, how to avoid common pitfalls and the subsequent failure of acquisitions
  • Identify and quantify potential problems and liabilities
  • Understand potential problems with cross-border due diligence and create a strategy to cope with these
