about

The most trusted M&A guidebook available--updated for today's extreme-risk world of business.

Major financial scandals, geopolitical upheaval, technological advances, rapid globalization . . . The world--and the way business is done--has changed drastically in the 10 short years since the originalpublication of this book. As a result, the alreadytedious M&A process has become exponentially more complex.

The most trusted guidebook of its kind, The Artof M&A Due Diligence helps you uncover problems and inconsistencies in an M&A deal while they're still manageable. You’ll find everything you need to mitigate all types of traditional risk—financial (key ratios, new GAAP-IFRS standards), operational (background checks, on-site visits), transactional (verification, checking warranties), and legal (intellectual property, environmental law).

This new edition also addresses complicationsintroduced over the past decade by including:

  • New information about the use of electronic datarooms for due diligence
  • New focus on the role of International Accounting Standards
  • New tools for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance
  • New regulations concerning the environment and social issues
  • New case law of interest, including key decisionsof the Delaware Chancery Court and Delaware Supreme Court

    The fear of risk in an M&A deal is rational, but it shouldn't prevent you from moving ahead. A well-conceived, carefully executed merger or acquisition can be extraordinarily enriching for both buyer and seller. This step-by-step guidebook is all you need to know where to look—and what to look for--when conducting M&A due diligence.
