Product description


"The authors of this book offer what they call a holistic approach to the due diligence aspects of corporate mergers and acquisitions. Although the authors briefly point to legal considerations in the M&A process, this is not a legal title. It was written by CPAs to provide practical guidance to due diligence activities. The authors accomplish this goal therefore the book would be more approporiate for an undergraduate or graduate business library than an academic law library." ( Legal Information Alert, Vol 29, No 3)

From the Inside Flap

In today′s uncertain economic climate, determining the potential for a prospective merger or acquisition to create shareholder value, and then delivering on that promise, is more critical than ever.

In one comprehensive volume, Due Diligence offers a synthesis of practical guidance that spans the entire acquisition process from strategic planning, candidate pursuit, target evaluation, contract negotiation, through post–acquisition integration. Written by William Gole and Paul Hilger recognized experts in the field of M&A this important resource outlines a proven approach to performing due diligence with an eye toward optimizing shareholder value.

The authors emphasize a broad approach to merger and acquisition due diligence and focus on points throughout the entire transaction when a deal presents either downside risk or an opportunity to create value. Offering a step–by–step approach to the due diligence process, Gole and Hilger emphasize the following principles:

  • Holistic Due Diligence: A cross–transactional perspective of risks and opportunities that spans the entire process
  • Sound Strategic Framework: A disciplined growth strategy that guides the search for suitable acquisition targets
  • Purposeful Behavior: Alignment of the acquirer¿s actions before, during, and following the close of the transaction with its value creation and risk mitigation objectives
  • Explicit Planning to Create Value: An investor mind–set that focuses on the creation of value for the acquirer

Any CFO, CEO, controller, director of finance, or business manager involved in a merger or acquisition will find this book to be a timely guide for ensuring productive results.
