Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are increasingly common in our industry. The due diligence (DD) necessary to drive the best course of action requires careful planning and forethought by key stakeholders. In this session, we will walk through an M&A scenario to brainstorm on pivotal questions to ask in pursuit of the go/no-go decision. Participants will actively engage in group brainstorming to synthesize key DD questions in finance, operations, commercial, legal, HR, IT, facilities, and other corporate functions, and will be provided with key considerations to take back to their workplace.

Learning Objectives

Define due diligence (DD) in an M&A and describe what due diligence includes; Construct key questions to ask in the DD process to inform go/no-go decisions.
