Private Equity Due Diligence: Process & Timing of M&A Due Diligence Dec. 2, 2023, 4:57 p.m.
Due diligence is sometimes referred to as a full proctological exam and rightfully so. It is more than a buyer’s attempt to confirm the stated valuation given by the seller to the buyer. It is much more than that. In very broad terms it provides a means for the buyer to get comfortable with operations, finance and marketing such that the buyer is able to understand the business from inside and out. There are some common aspects that run through all the due diligence processes but private equity due diligence tends to bring certain challenges.

Due diligence checklist for private equity firms Dec. 2, 2023, 4:50 p.m.
The purpose of due diligence may be the same for private equity as it is for other investment teams: to minimize risk and maximize value for investors. But many of the focus areas differ from venture capital and investment banking. To improve the odds that a PE deal will yield a return for your firm and its LPs, your deal team must gather information about the target company, the seller, and the assets for sale, then put together the best purchase plan and price. The due diligence strategy for a PE deal will be driven by the PE fund’s investment thesis and strategy for building value.
