Contemplating an M&A? Your biggest risk may be digital.
Today every M&A transaction has many significant considerations regarding digital. Beyond just the deals involving traditional companies acquiring “digital first” companies, all companies today have large and complex digital footprints.
A comprehensive due diligence assessment today must include an examination of a company’s digital and social media assets, mobile apps, systems and data, digital vendor commitments, security and privacy policies and compliance considerations. Understanding a company’s digital assets, the level of risk, as well as “digital debt” will help to ensure a proper valuation, potential risks, and the true cost and timeline for integration.
Please join your peers from companies like Meredith Corporation, Maersk Inc, Lowes Companies, RGA, Merck & Co, and CRH plc for our first-ever Digital Due Diligence for M&A Seminar on October 5, 2016. You’ll learn how to:
Identify digital assets, risks and the level of “digital debt” you will be acquiring
Examine a company’s digital and social media assets, systems and data, digital vendor commitments, security and privacy policies and compliance considerations, and create an effective integration plan
Develop an effective team to conduct an exhaustive digital due diligence assessment
