Due diligence - financial analysis that’s an integral part of the sale or purchase of any business - is a complex process usually carried out by accountants and other financial professionals. Tseng’s book first draws on his years of experience with mergers and acquisitions to provide a detailed overview of due diligence that allows readers who have a basic understanding of accounting practices and terminology to follow the process and understand its basic components. The guide is essentially structured as an immense checklist, with the steps - scope of work, information collection and cash flow analysis, among others - broken down into their key parts. In each subsection, the author provides a comprehensive list of the major details that should be addressed as well as questions to be answered when the analysis is complete. A recurring caution, which appears in multiple chapters, reminds readers that due diligence is an analysis of facts, not speculation. The author explains that conclusions should be based on solid data, and if the necessary numbers are unavailable, the report should note that reality, as opposed to guessing ... For those readers, however, the clearly written text and numerous examples add up to a useful addition to the reference shelf. Not quite an introduction, but a straightforward, detailed guide to a crucial type of financial analysis.” ~ Excerpt from Kirkus Indie Review ~
