Following a tough 2012 for mergers and acquisitions, hopes have been high that 2013 would see a noticeable pick-up in dealmaking activity. M&A Deals are taking longer to close in the current volatile climate. Completing thorough due diligence is more important than ever. Trends in the market highlight the significance of virtual data rooms to accommodate and manage the due diligence process.

In this article from a recent edition of Financier Worldwide, the topic of local knowledge and its role in the accomplishing successful M&A transactions is explored and three directors from Merrill DataSite offer their insight into global trends and the importance of utilizing virtual data rooms during the dealmaking process.

Flexibility and the need provide detailed and structured information to all participants in a deal seems to be of growing importance in a market searching for some certainty. In this more nuanced and regulated M&A world, the significance of a VDR becomes more pronounced. A virtual data room allows buyers to see what they are dealing with in terms of up to the minute facts and figures. They can also sort the wheat from the chaff – accessing only the most relevant information. Another important benefit of using a virtual data room during your deal cycle is risk management: a virtual data room facilitates airtight documentation of attributable knowledge – knowing who knew what and then being able to prove it. The value of this thorough, easily analysed due diligence cannot be understated.
