Providing greater transparency and clarity by due diligence is vital during an ongoing M&A process. It not only gathers and provides important information required to reveal potential financial, legal, IT, and regulatory risks, but also assures that the right investment is made at the right price.
One area which is especially important, but at the same time a potential source for risk, is the Information Technology (IT) function. Due to the fact that IT is getting more and more important for the business success, it needs to be addressed within M&A transactions as soon as possible.
So when considering acquiring a target company, corporations or Private Equity firms need to perform a neutral and adequate IT Due Diligence - not only for technology-driven companies or in case of carve-outs rsp. integrations. To ensure a high level of business alignment we perform IT Due Diligence strictly based on the investment thesis, and focus on the business processes that are supported by IT.

We have a proven track record in IT Advisory and Business Transformation as well as in M&A, especially in IT Due Diligence, Carve-Outs and IT Post Merger Integration.
