A Venture Capital Perspective: Technical Due Diligence in M&A

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 19:00

Today’s technology companies increasingly rely on open source software to create better software and services faster. IDC reports that 30% of the deployed code in the Global 2000 is open source software, and it is likely many times higher in resource-strapped startup environments.  However the day-to-day practice of using open source is often uncontrolled, particularly in startup companies, and can potentially create unknown legal and operational risks with a company’s software assets. The last thing a startup wants is the pressure of producing a clean bill of material for their software assets when they’re in the heat of acquisition discussions, which can negatively impact value and timing.

Join Peter Bell, General Partner at Highland Capital and Matt Jacobs, Senior Corporate Counsel at Black Duck to gain perspective on the importance of knowing what’s in your code, and the strategies and processes for evaluating open source and software assets within corporate mergers & acquisitions.  

Attend this webinar to learn: 

  • Why technical due diligence is important in software M&A
  • What steps are involved in the diligence process
  • Challenges and common concerns of targets, acquirers and investors
