IT Due Diligence

Solutions

IT Mergers & Acquisitions

Helping you succeed in transactions

The speed of change and growth in prominence of technology is unprecedented. Within a short timescale we have seen an evolution: from technology as an enabler of back-end processes, through to technology underpinning most, if not all of an organisation’s functions and fully establishing itself as a key disrupter, differentiator, and revenue driver. Within the context of an M&A transaction – for buyers or sellers – this means technology now represents both a valuable opportunity as well as a considerable risk in equal measure.

What we do

At Deloitte, the M&A Technology team advises organisations on maximising the value and offsetting the risks of technology in M&A transactions. We combine a sharp focus on commercials with technology expertise, so you understand the impact of our advice on your valuation of the deal. We can support you from the deal origination to the post-deal completion, assisting you with both transaction priorities, future growth ambitions as well as restructuring advice.

We work with corporate and private equity clients on both the buy side and the sell-side of transactions, related IPOs, as well as post-closing solutions such as (Post Merger) Integrations or Separations. We have dedicated IT Due Diligence practitioners in Switzerland that can draw on assistance from our large Technology Consulting teams, Audit & Assurance teams and Risk Advisory teams, including dedicated Cyber diligence colleagues to offer a comprehensive view of a transaction.
