Abstract :

The 1990s witnessed too many failed mergers and acquisitions (M and A) because companies have not or inadequately conducted the traditional diligence process. Companies thinking of merging with or acquiring another company should regard due diligence as an investment not as a cost because this process decreases the probability of failure of M and A. Furthermore, due diligence increases the value of the combined entity.
