Financial Diligence in M&A
About the event
“Financial Due Diligence is about unpacking the company and understanding what's inside before closing the deal to avoid surprises and liabilities." - Amr Abdelaziz.
Finance is arguably the most critical part of the due diligence process. Almost every transaction comes down to the numbers unless it's a pure IP deal. Conducting effective financial diligence in M&A is crucial to every acquisition's success.
- Financial Due Diligence: The first step to financial due diligence is to look at the target's historical financial information.
- Collaboration: After finding issues in the diligence process, the finance team must collaborate with the other internal teams, such as the legal and HR teams.
- Post- deal: The finance team's work isn't done even after the deal is closed.
