M&A hasn't slowed down despite uncertain times. In fact, a large percentage of companies are expediting their M&A transactions. One of the most important aspects of M&A is the standard due diligence process for technology acquisitions mainly focusing on the seller’s OSS and third-party disclosure documents. Without this process, you run the risk of creating a financial nightmare for the acquiring company and ruin your reputation in the process.

Here are the seven steps to follow for M&A due diligence. Whether you are acquiring or being acquired, FOSSA’s due diligence audits deliver the most comprehensive and accurate picture of your open source compliance, security, and quality risks.

7 Steps for M&A Due Diligence and Open Source Compliance covers:

  • Opens source audits
  • Documentation and reporting
