Overview

Companies of all sizes have been initiating international transactions—mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, and private placements—in record numbers. Targeted due diligence is crucial to effectively research, value, and complete these complex deals. With an evolving climate of uncertainty and new, unpredictable threats to business, it is more essential than ever before.

Due Diligence for Global Deal Making is an invaluable guidebook for companies trying to capitalize on the opportunities in both developed and emerging cross-border markets. All too often global transactions fail to meet the parties' expectations, and the leading culprit is inadequate due diligence. Especially when the target partner lacks a financial performance track record and significant assets, expanding businesses must answer difficult questions, such as: Why (if at all) do this deal? What are the rules going in, and what happens if things go wrong? Where are the tax, legal, financial, and operational traps, and what are the opportunities? This book provides what’s needed to avoid devastating mistakes and to master the steps that ensure success:

  • Expert analysis, insights, and strategies from experienced practitioners and leading authorities in cross-border matters
  • In-depth coverage of critical topics decision makers need to understand in order to succeed in cross-border transactions—from corporate planning to operational, financial, legal, tax, accounting, and people/organizational considerations
  • Best practices of corporate investors and professional advisers in conducting critical due diligence

Noted experts discuss critical topics corporate executives—and all those involved with their company's legal, operational, accounting, and tax matters—need to know to successfully complete complex global transactions today.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"It's hard to find a book more timely than Due Diligence for Global Deal Making. The rapid growth of global markets in the last decade of the twentieth century increased the risk of fraud and problems in understanding legal and financial documents and assessing operations. Arthur Rosenbloom, a top authority on due diligence, has correctly diagnosed the situation and edited a useful and strategically important book. Many of the recent financial scandals to which we are witness might have been avoided had the lessons appearing in this work been heeded."
—Vladimir Kvint, PhD
Professor of Management Systems and International Business, Fordham University

Contributing Editor, Forbes Global magazine

"This is a timely book that brings back the commonsense, in addition to the applied forensics, approach to due diligence. In light of recent dramatic due-diligence failures, deal participants need to make sure they fully understand the company that is undergoing a corporate transaction. Due-diligence issues are often exacerbated in cross-border deals, making this book's global focus very relevant."
—James H. Zukin
Senior Managing Director, Houlihan Lokey Howard & Zukin Capital

"Thoughtful due diligence has never been more important in deal making, and this book gives you all the tools to get the job done. It also goes beyond diligence to clarify strategy and long-term objectives. It's a critical business reference."
