Reply To: "Speedy" DD


Christoffer Balieu

Only in a case where the buyer has extensive prior insight and knowledge about the target would a limited DD process be advisable. As you mentioned, it is an MBO, which would indicate that the buyer, in this case, should have in-depth knowledge about the target. A limited DD process could be desirable in your example to minimize wasted time, and leave greater room for the negotiation process. However, in general, it is a red flag if the seller is very keen on conducting a swift and limited DD, as it could indicate that they are aware certain risks would surface in a more thorough DD.
