Capstone Webinar: A New Look at Due Diligence

On Friday, August 21, 2009, Capstone will be hosting a webinar on maximizing the time and effort put into due diligence in the acquisition process.

Due diligence has traditionally been seen as a “check the box”  exercise – you evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a target, uncover liabilities and understand risk in order to determine whether to proceed with the acquisition.

While these are all still valid and necessary reasons, a new way of thinking about due diligence has come to the forefront.  Due diligence will allow you to find opportunities to boost the likelihood of success for a deal.  Due diligence can:

– Pave the way for a smoother integration
– Identify “stars” that will help the newly formed entity grow
– Craft a creative deal structure to allow a deal to flourish

Due diligence is about more than just looking for red flags and hammering the target for more and more information.

The webinar is free and open to the public.  There will be a a 45 minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session.

Date:  Friday, August 21, 2009
Time: 1:00 PM ET/ Noon CT/ 11:00 AM MT/ 10:00 AM PT
