Due diligence

What is due diligence?

Due diligence refers to the comprehensive appraisal or investigation conducted by a prospective buyer or investor into a company's business, assets, liabilities, and financial performance before a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition, or investment.

The purpose of due diligence is to identify any potential issues or liabilities before a transaction takes place. This process includes analyzing financial records, operational practices, legal and compliance status, and other critical business details. It helps the investor make informed decisions and mitigate risks.
