Vintage Whitepaper Discusses the Good Practices and Bad Pitfalls of M&A for 2016


The process of conducting an M&A deal has altered substantially over the years. Yet the basic pillars of how deals are done — targeting, negotiating, due diligence and integrating — have remained constant throughout these changes.

Despite this, the rapid pace of change has seen these pillars take on new significance over time. Technology, for instance, has made gathering information on potential targets exponentially easier than in the past. Similarly, the advent of online data rooms has significantly sped up the due diligence process. With all these factors coming into prominence, Mergermarket and Vintage gathered five experts to discuss how the dealmaking process has changed. As well as this, they offer up the lessons they have learned, through decades of dealmaking experience, regarding what makes for successful M&A targeting, negotiation, due diligence and integration.
