The AMA Handbook of Due Diligence

by William M. Crilly and Andrew J. Sherman

What is "Due Diligence"? "Due diligence" is a process whereby an individual, or an organization, seeks sufficient information about a business entity to reach an informed judgement as to its value for a specific purpose.

Situations Calling For Due Diligence

Due diligence is performed in a wide variety of situations, e.g.:

  • By a firm considering a potential acquisition.
  • By an investment banker considering underwriting a public security offering or promoting a private placement.
  • By a banker considering the making of a loan.
  • By a venture capitalist considering an investment.
  • By a lawyer preparing an offering statement or a merger proposal for a client.
  • By an appraiser who has been retained to estimate the value of a business unit.
  • By a business broker offering a company for sale.
  • By a public accounting firm in conjunction with an audit performed at the request of a potential buyer or in support of a security offering.
  • By a security analyst preparing a buy, hold or sell recommendation on a public security.

The due diligence investigation is normally carried out with the knowledge and cooperation of the management of the entity being investigated.

COMPLETELY NEW edition of the most comprehensive due diligence guide ever published -- now with customizable forms on CD!

Includes a CD-ROM that provides instant access to over 400 forms and templates!

The AMA Handbook of Due Diligence is the most complete guide available on how to properly perform a due diligence investigation -- and radically improve the success rate of a pending corporate merger or acquisition. The new edition of this long-trusted resource includes a CD-ROM packed with almost 400 customizable forms and templates for recording and analyzing every possible operational or financial activity at any organization.

Extensively revised and updated, the book reflects significant changes in the financial landscape such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. There are specialized sections on joint ventures, franchises, and outsourcing, as well as new legal memo and form requirements, including data room index, preliminary diligence memorandum, and the Hart-Scott-Rodino questionnaire. Thorough and easy to use, this essential resource will ensure that every “t” is crossed, every “i” dotted . . . and no mistakes left out on the table.
