Board Members: Play an Active and Informed Role in M&A Due Diligence
A feature article in NACD Directorship Magazine
Corporate boards are generally comprised of individuals with diverse skill sets, not all of them quantitative in nature. Yet given their differing knowledge levels and perspectives, board members should play an active and informed role in the process of assessing and effectuating a potential transaction.
When board members actively participate in the due diligence process, they can be in a position to better evaluate the potential benefits and risks of an M&A transaction and, thus, strengthen the rationale behind the company’s ultimate “go or no-go” decision.
Understand more about the board member's role in M&A due diligence by reading the attached NACD Directorship Magazine article featuring Hector Calzada, managing director at Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC, Steve Joiner, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and Criss DeKreek, senior manager, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP.
