The 15th century Latin legal maxim of Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware) resonates with equal vigour in modern-day transactional landscape. It is of utmost importance in any transaction to identify and mitigate the various risks that the potential transaction can expose the contracting parties to. The process of due diligence is performed with an objective to identify the risks inherent to the transaction and also confirm the accuracy of certain key parameters on which the value of the transaction is based. At Bathiya, the teams are extensively involved in performing transactional integrated due diligence including financial and tax due diligence for multiple transactions across multiple industry domains. The experience of numerous transactions is a key differentiation in assessing the risk potential and the methods to mitigate the same. Cross-functional diligence teams with industry domains working across geographies acts as a big enabler to any transaction. Risks arising out of the transactions or identified during due diligence are effectively mitigated by altering the transaction structure or by enhanced documentary comfort. The M&A 360 approach ensures that the structural impacts as well as diligence risks are appropriately addressed in transaction documentation.
