View this page in: Français

Buying or selling a company is a complex process, fraught with risk and uncertainty. That’s why buyers have historically used due diligence to help reveal hidden risks or opportunities that will help them negotiate a better price. While frenzied markets of the past put the seller at an advantage, in today’s tougher markets sellers shoulder much of the burden to be prepared. The sellers must know what the buyers are looking for, and understand the risks which may lead to deal failure, missed value targets, or stumbling along a protracted timeline.
