I agree – the target company also has a responsibility to vet the acquirer on the same fronts – financial, strategic and cultural. Just as for the acquirer, the information and the extent of the diligence will significantly depend on the strategic motivations of the target as well. A seller who is looking to divest completely a unit or element of their operations may be more concerned with the financial viability of the acquirer than the strategic/cultural match however a seller who is looking to leverage synergies and technologies may be much more focused on the strategic and cultural understanding.
