Companies undergoing M&A or Divestiture must account for their information assets (IP, research, PII, HR...) in order to substantiate the value and understand the financial risks. These are not always associated with data you know you have. It’s the data in the dark, the ‘unknown unknowns’ that need understanding.
How can you conduct due diligence on this information assets if you don’t know what or where it is? How can you value a company without knowing the real information value and risks?
If divesting you need to ensure that there is no residual information you no longer own. That you have adhered to the criteria as per the transaction.
A company’s data is its most valuable asset and Omnis M&A Due Diligence / Divestiture service helps to give you a more clarity and confidence in what you are purchasing or divesting.
