We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.

IT leaders working on customer service projects must display an incredible amount of diligence. An organization’s CRM system has become its lifeline to customers, but as customer needs evolve so has the requirements of CRM.

It is no secret banks are losing customers, and fast. A recent Finextra/Pegasystems survey pegs that 78% of banks have lost business in the last 12 months. The question is “Why?”. It all comes down to engaging with customers before, during and even after the sales process. Nearly all banks are struggling with the impact of client due diligence and KYC (know your customer) regulation on their onboarding processes, and are painfully aware that lack of speed, process visibility and repeat data requests are frustrating their corporate customers. The same holds true for service, where corporates are crying out for improvement, as well as omni-channel access and quick turnaround of service requests and inquiries. To stop the sales decline, banks need to begin doing all these things well. They will then be more competitive in the market as well as retain and win new business.

The majority of enterprise software is now consumed via SaaS or cloud deployments. Despite a perception of simplicity in software acquisition, many cloud contracts require all the rigor and due diligence of contracts for on-premises licensed software. The Enterprise Cloud Buyer's Bill of Rights provides a tool for clients and vendors to change the tenor of contract negotiations from user subservience to an equal and collaborative long-term partnership.

Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

Longi Engineering was engaged to assist a Private Equity Firm in implementing a SharePoint deal management system as an additional component to their existing on premise SharePoint server solution. The organization faced multiple challenges in that they did not possess an efficient technology solution that allowed them to manage their deals and associated history. One of the organization’s goals was to create a centralized, easily accessible dashboard interface from which they could rapidly determine the status of a deal as well as manage their deals. Their deal lifecycle had multiple stages depending on whether a deal was New, in a diligence phase, on Hold or Dead.

La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.

Sanctions screening and fraud prevention solutions use real-time detection to prevent terrorist financing and financial crime; whereas anti-money laundering (AML) primarily follows an “observe and report” process. Such a process is all that is currently required by many regulators. Increasingly though, international compliance teams are choosing to stop transactions before they are executed – based on suspicions of money laundering activity. More and more, the industry has been asking itself if this approach of rejecting suspicious activity is a more effective strategy to prevent money laundering. This paper explores where and why AML real-time detection might make sense as a new paradigm for global financial institutions.

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth

Data is multiplying rapidly in quantity and variety for enterprises of all kinds. In multicloud environments, a range of data sources is exponentially increasing the stream of incoming information, from the Internet of Things and social media, to mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking. While organizations are readily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), most haven’t done due diligence to understand their data or ensure the quality of data needed to benefit from AI solutions. In many organizations, their data is inaccessible, unreliable, or non-compliant with data privacy and protection rules.
