How can the buyer maximize the post merger-value?
Companies can maximize post-value in three ways:
- Provide the due diligence team with a more business-focused, strategic and forward-looking mandate.
- Ensure that the due diligence effort is comprehensive - that is, that it covers everything from legal and financial to operational issues and that the transaction matches the company's overall business strategy.
- Leverage the due diligence outputs in post-announcement integration efforts.
