Pre-investment due diligence for private funds should be more than a check-the-box exercise that begins and ends in the final days of closing on a new deal. A due diligence investigation can identify undisclosed business interests, financial problems, or legal issues a company’s principals have worked to keep hidden, and possible reputational issues a company’s officers and/or directors would rather not come out. Trained investigators know how to look for these issues and more, ensuring the deal team has relevant intelligence well before the investment is finalized.
In this 60-minute webinar our panel of experts discuss what should be covered in an investigation, when to initiate the work, what levels of background investigation are appropriate, and the legal and practical limitations involved in any investigation. You’ll hear from Mark Skertic, managing director in K2 Integrity’s Investigations and Disputes practice; Alice Shone, senior director in K2 Integrity’s Investigations and Disputes practice; and Ian Ivory, partner in White and Case’s global M&A and Corporate practice.
By the end of the session, you will be able to:
- Explain why pre-investment due diligence is critical
- Describe the types of issues that can be discovered during pre-investment investigation
- Distinguish between the different levels of background due diligence
- Determine the best time to engage the investigation phase of the pre-investment process
- Discuss the benefits of leveraging trained investigators during pre-investment investigations
