Few strategic initiatives bring greater risks and opportunities to modern organizations than business mergers, acquisitions, and sales (MA&S) transactions. Internal auditors can provide critical insights and perspectives that can make the difference between success and failure for these vitally important business transactions; yet too often, auditors do not have the specialized knowledge they need to provide effective, value-added services for MA&S activities.

In this book, you will learn how internal auditors can add value throughout the MA&S process, from the earliest planning stages to the final reviews after a transaction is complete. Written by a veteran MA&S auditor, the book is packed with helpful tools designed to help assure the success of organizations' mergers and acquisitions, including:

  • Practical examples
  • Sample calculations
  • Checklists 

The book explains key concepts, best practices, and controls for each step of MA&S processes, providing important guidance on topics such as:

  • Due diligence
  • Business valuation
  • Risks associated with mergers and acquisitions 

Written specifically for internal audit professionals, Mergers, Acquisitions, and Sales: How Internal Audit Adds Value and Effectiveness provides clear-cut, flexible solutions that can be applied to all MA&S transactions. It is an ideal reference source both for experienced practitioners and for those new to MA&S auditing.
