25 Oct 2018 Assessing and Managing Risks of M&A Deals

Oct 25, 2018

Mergers & acquisitions appear to be the trend; they could somehow even be more popular than initial public offerings.  You may have heard of due diligence – what is it and how does it support a transaction?

In this seminar, the speaker will introduce the foundations of a deal process – what are the differences of various types of due diligence, and what value does a due diligence create?  How is it different from an audit?
