M&A transactions involve the secure exchange of sensitive information between multiple parties, such as law firms, investment banks and buyers. This usually involves large documents that include financial documentation blueprints, other documents and more. Utilizing the right virtual data room makes the process easier, faster and more efficient.
Modern VDRs provide a high degree of protection during the M&A process thanks to features such as built-in redactions, dynamic watermarkings, fence views and granular access rights for users. Administrators can also set a date and time of expiration for each document, deactivate remote access and monitor user activity. These functions reduce human error, which is a major cause of 95% data breaches.
Administrators can also define access rights at the level of the folder and file for control over who can access what. This is essential for M&A transactions since sensitive financial documentation can be shared with a small number of users to review regulatory requirements or due diligence. This helps the seller save money and resources by not sharing unnecessary information with potential buyers.
Additionally, a VDR’s Q&A feature is a great tool to make communication easier between all parties involved in the process of completing a M&A deal without resorting email. The ability to sort, prioritize and organize questions allows the admin to manage efficiently the flow of information between buyer and seller.
