Key issues are: 

  • Role of regulatory due diligence and compliance in the context of external growth, in order to measure and anticipate risks 
  • How these assessments help refine knowledge about the target company and limit adverse impacts in the event of non-compliance 
  • Risk assessment of corruption, detection of money laundering, transfer of responsibilities, circumvention of sanctions, reputation of the target company and its management during compliance due diligence 
  • Calculate the time frame for harmonization of the target's compliance program
  • Establish the nature and extent of compliance due diligence procedures

This discussion will give you a broader understanding of the challenges and importance of due diligence, as the acquiror identifies non-compliance practices of the target company while preserving the value of assets acquired. 

Following the panel, share what you’ve learned with your peers as you network over drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
