4 Ways to Speed Up M&A Due Diligence

Due diligence is a time-consuming yet essential part of mergers and acquisitions, giving the prospective buyer the chance to review information about the seller and its assets. By enforcing openness and transparency, due diligence allows both M&A buyers and sellers to lower the financial and legal risk of participating in the transaction.

In some respects, a lengthy due diligence process is a good thing: it ensures that buyers have the time to fully understand what they’re getting into. But far too often, a due diligence process that stretches on for too long can threaten and even derail an M&A transaction. The longer a deal goes on, the more likely it is that this “honeymoon” phase will wear off, and the easier it will be for the buyer to find an excuse that serves as an escape hatch from the deal.

The good news is that you can follow a few best practices to shorten your own due diligence timeline and give the transaction the greatest chance at success. Below, we’ll discuss 4 tips for speeding up the M&A due diligence process.
