Meticulous preparation is a condition for a successful property acquisitions or sales, be it an asset or share deal. To accelerate the process and reassure buyers – thereby ensuring an optimum disposal (best price within the best timescales) – sellers must provide in the data room due diligence reports (including market, technical, environmental, financial, legal, fiscal, etc.). To document their opinion internally and to other stakeholders such as shareholders or banks, buyers need to analyse carefully the due diligence reports and their potential impacts on the terms and conditions of the acquisition.
