NNikolaiss Aren't due diligence is out of scope of analist? should legal person do it?
leon121 @NNikolaiss: The term "due diligence" is not exclusively for legal folks. From Wikipedia: Due diligence is an investigation of a business or person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care. It can be a legal obligation, but the term will more commonly apply to voluntary investigations.
CJPerugini Due diligence evaluation describes the role of an auditor.
markbucfa How about "The analyst prepares reports about the status/potential of a company to be acquired and it's the *due diligence* of the acquirer if he has to proceed or withdraw from the acquisition."?
sevywonder Diligence is just research done into an investment. No legal or audit connotation here.
oualidb It's viewed in a financial angle '' Acquisition''
