In this issue of “Our view”, we look into the pros and cons of virtual data rooms (VDRs) from an inbound/domestic China M&A perspective given various issues that have potential to impede the due diligence process unless planned for.
Key points of interest include:
- various issues – some China-specific – that typically arise regarding VDR use on inbound/domestic China M&A that should be factored in from both risk and cost perspectives
- the typical need for on-site fieldwork in China M&A
- why a ‘dual approach’ (incorporating both on-site fieldwork and VDR deployment) is recommended.
