Episode 3 –The mindset behind M&A technology due diligence

As the pressure of the deal clock ticks, it’s easy for tech acquirers to get caught up in revenue projections, legal and HR, when they need to stay core to the actual target’s function, the product they sell.

In episode 3 of The Due Diligence show, we chat about how the value of technology due diligence is often a misunderstood area of the M&A process.

Many acquirers consider technology as a “tick box” item that is simply covered contractually, the problem is that if the core tech asset that drives a company’s revenue can look great at face value, but can often be poorly executed and unfit for the buyers “deal thesis”.

Beyond inspecting the source code asset, there are many complementary activities that the Thought Source team discuss which will bring material information to the other diligence work streams such as customer sentiment, future fit and scale, potential misuse of open source, key contributor retainment, future team investment and more

Episode 4 – What can be done before a deal

Do your deal homework! – that’s the message from this episode of The Due Diligence Show. There are so many things that can be easily done before a deal is in play. The Thought Source team chat about how often a deal is in the final throws of due diligence and we ask ourselves, why didn’t the buyer know this beforehand?

Whether its competitive intelligence, bake-offs, outside-in reviews, product quality and support analysis, all of these activities can be easily done using publicly available information without the hint of a deal.
