Cass-Forschungsbericht: Streng vertraulich – auf Englisch

In dieser Studie der Cass Business School wurde der Prozess von Fusionen und Übernahmen (M&A) untersucht, um zu bestimmen, wie der Due-Diligence-Prozess von den Merkmalen eines Deals beeinflusst wird und wie er sich auf die Verhandlungen und den Erfolg des Deals auswirkt.

This Cass Business School study examines the process of merger and acquisition transactions (M&As) to infer how the due diligence process is affected by the properties of a deal, as well as the impact of due diligence on deal negotiations and deal success. 

Key findings include:

  • Longer due diligence results in a higher likelihood of deal success
  • Longer due diligence is to the advantage of the buyer (and to the disadvantage of the seller)
  • Due diligence is done more quickly on public companies
  • Due diligence is done more quickly on larger targets
  • Most M&A leaks are likely to be intentional
