    Imagine trying to complete a puzzle, but you’re missing a few pieces. This is what it feels like during due diligence in a merger when data is missing.

    The Challenge: Having all the data is crucial in mergers. Yet, finding all the needed information is often difficult. Companies sometimes find gaps in records, deal with messy data, and face restrictions on accessing important information.

    The Story: Let’s consider a scenario: Company A wants to merge with Company B. As they start checking Company B’s details, they find missing financial records and messy operational data. Because of these unknowns, there’s a risk they might pay too much for Company B.

    The Solution: Company A decides to tackle this head-on. They use new software to organize the messy data and talk more with Company B to get better access to information. They also hire experts to check everything and fill in the gaps.

    Finally, Like finishing a puzzle, getting all the data in place helps make a good decision. For Company A, solving the data puzzle helped them make a smart choice and avoid a bad deal.
