IT Due Diligence in M&A

Taking the headache of IT due diligence out
of mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are often complex, secretive, high-value, and long-term for any firm. That is why it is important to ensure that your IT due diligence is up to scratch.

Lights-On’s formal M&A IT due diligence process has been honed across many years and numerous business sectors. It utilises our trusted IT review process but is structured to the specific needs, constraints, and speed of an M&A investigation. 

We will analyse and advise on best practices to guide stakeholders throughout a merger or acquisition process. As such, our process involves:

  • Conducting a technology audit in line with the business strategies of the merging firms
  • Completing an assessment of the compatibility of the existing product sets within the individual firms
  • Establishing next steps for the products used and facilitate supplier meetings and contract review if required
  • Provide project management support to manage the technology stack whilst the firm continues with business-as-usual activities

Due diligence forms a crucial part of any merger or acquisition. Ensuring that the correct data is collected and delivered allows for truly informed decisions to be able to maximise the effectiveness of the deal.

If you are considering a merger or acquisition, contact Lights-On Consulting for a confidential discussion.

Lights-On are one of our first phone calls when we are preparing for a merger and form an integral part of the team.  

Their experience across a broad range of technologies allows us to focus on the people and the culture, confident in the fact that Lights-On will provide a comprehensive analysis and recommendations for merging the IT systems. Their knowledge and attention to detail allows them to highlight specific challenges between systems and they can always be relied upon to assist in developing solutions for those issues.
