Due Diligence in the Life Science Industry

| 01 July 2009

Due diligence is the act of reviewing information to ascertain the value of data presented by checking for compliance and/or investigate the desirability, value and potential of an investment. Due diligence should be performed prior to any merger or acquisition to determine whether information about the target company is correct, accurate and properly disclosed. It can also be carried out on a smaller scale before, for example, buying assets or products from another company, licensing or acquiring a technology, or acquiring a division. The review may encompass the company's financial, legal, labor, tax, IT and commercial situation and may include such areas as intellectual property, real and personal property, insurance and liability coverage, among others.11
