Buy-Side Due Diligence: Report Checklist and Guide for M&A and Other Transactions

Caveat emptor. That's really what buy-side due diligence comes down to, protecting you and your stakeholders' collective backside from an investment that goes sideways. And as many buyers will tell you, there are plenty of ways for a purchase – even one that sparkles at first glance – to quickly become a corporate albatross.

Purchase Accounting: Valuations, Adjustments & Accounting for M&As

M&A isn’t a sprint. It’s a coordinated marathon for your company, team, and group of advisors. And like most things in life, all it takes is a single weak link to throw a wrench into everything, particularly your accounting squad. Drilling even deeper into the M&A accounting core, if your team isn’t up-to-speed on the ASC 805 front – FASB’s business combinations gospel – trouble might be lurking just up the road.
