Due diligence is critical for a whole range of corporate finance transactions: investments in businesses, acquisitions and disposals. All too often it is seen as part of a process associated with mergers and acquisitions to be subcontracted out to third parties or specialists and it typically has a very heavy legal orientation. This 3-day course provides a broader view of due diligence and looks beyond conventional wisdom by placing a very significant weighting upon its contribution to the commercial viability of prospective ventures. As such, it will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and practices of due diligence- the art of understanding exactly whether you are getting what you are paying for. It is directed at both investments in businesses ('greenfield' or 'brownfield') and those acquired to fit synergistically with existing companies.
