I would cautioned that do not rush into a deal without a sufficient due diligence (“DD”) being performed. This is where and why a disaster happens. Most acquisitions especially acquisitions involving public listed companies are always tied up with tight DD deadlines which causes the DD team to carry out the DD work at a rush. It often leads to surprises and identification of major issues after the acquisition process which could turn a good looking deal to a very bad deal subsequently. However, if the acquisition isn’t a large acquisition by the definition of the acquirer and the acquirer had possess sufficient information and good knowledge about the target company, a limited DD could be performed to reduce time and effort.
