Transaction Readiness

Your M&A deal should leave nothing to chance. It’s critical to know everything about an acquisition target or a potential buyer before closing the deal. Deloitte’s Transaction Readiness practice performs the preliminary due diligence essential to avoiding problems later on. This includes establishing key criteria for targets and buyers and facilitating selection.
