The meaning of due diligence is to ‘have a measure of prudence’ or to ‘perform a prudent review’. In an acquisition context, due diligence is generally described as a mixture of legal due diligence and financial due diligence which aims to verify the factual accuracy of financial claims made by the seller.

Financial due diligence in particular allows the buyer to assess all financial aspects of a potential acquisition to determine what the benefits, liabilities, risks and opportunities are. In conjunction with other forms of due diligence, it is generally considered the best way to ensure what you pay is justified. It should also give you confidence that you as the buyer will be able to fulfil the value proposition a new acquisition presents.
