PE Power Play: HR & IT Due Diligence Unleashed

This webinar on PE Power Play: HR & IT Due Diligence Unleashed will be held virtually on Zoom.

Failure of due diligence to highlight issues around asset quality is the No. 1 reason for unsuccessful capability deals and 60% of executives attributed PE deal failure to poor due diligence that did not identify critical issues.

HR & IT Due Diligence in Private Equity are a bit like pre-nuptial agreements before a marriage. People have an idea about what they are, but very few people do them unless they have already been through a painful divorce. Even in this case, they often repeat the same patterns. They are so excited about the idea of marriage that they are oblivious to how to make the marriage work.

Gabriela Nguyen-Groza, Managing Partner at Amrop Luxembourg and Frédéric Vezon, Président of Neovian Digital France, will discuss about the importance of HR & IT Due Diligence. The investors’ commitment to deal with any issues and challenges upfront really makes the difference between a bad deal and a real success. We can blame market conditions, the general context, or find another reason for failure, but, at the end of the day, proper IT and HR due diligence should be a rule, not exceptions.
