It’s our pleasure to invite you to join us at the Rainmaker MIAMI Summit—one of the largest M&A conventions in the world—November 15-16, 2018. It’s your opportunity to “FOCUS on Successful Cross-Border M&A” at a unique networking event concentrating on solid cross-border M&A opportunities.
Today, we’re living in a “digital age” where every M&A transaction has many significant digital considerations and all companies have large, complex digital footprints. According to the Conference Board:
“A comprehensive digital due diligence assessment includes an examination of a company’s digital and social media assets, including websites, social platforms and online communities, systems and data, digital vendor commitments, security and privacy policies and compliance considerations.
