CASS レポート: When no one knows

CASSビジネススクールの研究では、企業の吸収合併取引(M&A)プロセスを調査し、デューディリジェンスがディールの資産によって受ける影響と、逆にデューディリジェンスが商談やディールの成功に与える影響を推測しました。

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

Read this study to get a better understanding of the due diligence process required to achieve deal success.
