Digitalization M&A

Tools & solutions during the M&A process

Welcome to digiweek M&A, which will be held for the first time this year in digital format from 14 to 18 June. The target group is all M&A professionals interested in tools and solutions to facilitate the M&A process.

The digiweek M&A is organised by M&A Media Services GmbH together with the content partners M&A REVIEW, German Association for Mergers & Acquisitions e.V. (BM&A) , Fusions & Acquisitions and M&A REVIEW EUROPE.

Together we will provide many different insights into the M&A process, be it from the perspective of investors such as corporates or private equity firms or consultants and solution providers.  In this way, the exchange that has already been started by different process participants in this field, such as BM&A in particular, will be further stimulated.

Many challenges in the process can already be solved today with the help of appropriate IT tools & solutions. So for 5 days - that is the plan - we will look at M&A tools & solutions from different angles.

Tools & solutions for the strategy phase (Day 1 - e.g. target screening / deal sourcing), for transaction phase (Day 2 - e.g. due diligence, VDR, smart contracting), for carve-out and PMI (Day 3 - e.g. process management, IT integration/separation), for covering cyber risks and data protection (Day 4 - e.g. outside-in analysis tools) and tools & solutions that are currently developing / establishing themselves on the market (Day 5 - Start up / Venture Day).

And the good thing is that we could also make this content available to the interested M&A community at later dates.

The first feedback we have received is very encouraging that this approach can have a significant impact. If successful, we plan to establish this event as a permanent fixture in the annual calendar of M&A professionals

We will keep you informed about updates in the currenct program planning!

This online conference will be held with the support of zoom and/or the embedded livestreaming service of M&A Media Services GmbH. The online conference will be recorded and will probably be available later on the websites of the organiser. By participating in the event, the participant accepts the general terms and conditions of the organiser.
