FREE SEMINAR: Due Diligence - Getting it Right

Friends' Meeting House, Manchester, 9.30-11am


Whether you’re considering a merger or group structure, acquiring a subsidiary, or exploring other strategic partnerships such as Joint Ventures and Cost Sharing Groups, due diligence is a crucial bridge to be crossed early in the project.

Get it right, and all parties can fully assess the risks and make informed decisions that are key to success. Get it wrong, and the risk - and expense - of serious problems, nasty shocks, and even failure, further down the road are increased.

This seminar - delivered in partnership between Croftons and DTP - will help housing providers put the pieces of the due diligence puzzle together, ensuring you investigate the right things, at the right time, and in the right way, in order to get the information and intelligence needed to mitigate risk and drive your project forward.

What we’ll cover:

  • Why and when due diligence is needed
  • Planning and scoping
  • Resourcing, and putting the right internal and external teams in place
  • Key areas of due diligence: legal, financial, commercial, & cultural
  • Evaluating and acting on your findings
  • Red lines and knowing when to walk away
  • Top tips and common pitfalls to avoid

GUEST SPEAKER: Charlie Norman, Chief Executive, MSV Housing Group

Charlie will give her insight into lessons learned during the due diligence process in the recent merger between Mosscare and St Vincent’s, and discuss how getting the right cultural fit, and an alignment of similar values in the two organisations, was equally important as ensuring financial and legal affairs were in order.

Who should come?

Our seminar is aimed at RPs’ senior decision-makers and those closely involved in the planning and delivery of strategic projects, including board members and executive teams, Directors/Heads of finance/resources, company secretaries, and those responsible for governance, risk, audit and legal and regulatory compliance.
