When virtual data rooms (VDRs) first appeared on the business landscape about a decade ago, they quickly became the favorite tool for M&A due diligence surpassing physical data repositories. During the last few years, cross-border mergers and acquisitions were at their hottest pace since before the financial crisis. In fact, M&A volume was $1.10 trillion in 2014, up from $775.3 billion in 2013 and the highest since 2008, according to Acquisitions International magazine . In fact, another research confirms that private equity investment firms forecast very high deal activity in 2015, up from 89 percent a year earlier .
In most M&A deals, the seller faces the burden of collecting and distributing critical documents while ensuring that such information is delivered in compliance with security requirements, privacy regulations and other practices for handling highly sensitive corporate information. All of these factors put significant pressure on the seller’s workflow and tools for sharing deal-related documents.
Yet the problem with most high-end data room vendors is the lack of an option to promptly deploy the data room and start using it without going through the process of the contract and terms negotiation with the vendor which may take a week or even more. In many cases the due-diligence process needs to be started as soon as possible and such delays are not acceptable. Also it’s a quite common situation that it may be hard to estimate the exact volume of documents before the bidders will start actively review the information and send requests for additional document submission.
“We have analyzed our customers experience over the past seven years and realized that around 35% of M&A deals that approached the due-diligence stage and deployed the data room were postponed or broken during the first two months and didn’t go any further,” explained Dan Mesh, VP of Sales at iDeals, “With our 60-day free offer, dealmakers can open a high-quality virtual data room, upload and share their documents with bidders while keeping full control. There are no obligations. If the deal doesn’t go through for any reason – for example, bidders lose interest - the data room can be closed without incurring any financial losses. At the same time all parties will enjoy a peace of mind knowing that their sensitive data was handled securely. Also if they decide to reopen the data room, their information will be kept ready for access."
