As an M&A lawyer, I did due diligence and supervised it. From that experience, I know that virtual data rooms are central to the M&A process. An early step in a company putting itself up for sale is loading documents into a VDR, so that deal teams can learn what they need to about the target.
While there are a lot of companies that offer VDR functionality, Intralinks stands out; it is a dominant player for good reason. Intralinks originated the VDR market and have stayed at the leading edge of it technologically. They are fully focused on M&A, and know it deeply. They are also a core part of of being a junior M&A professional: I suspect that many lawyers and bankers have learned they were staffed on a new deal from receiving an automated message from Intralinks that have been added to a new Dealspace.
Today, we're ecstatic to announce that we're partnering with Intralinks to provide a better due diligence experience. Intralinks is the leading place to store diligence documents; Kira Diligence Engine is the fastest and most accurate way to review and analyze diligence documents. Together, M&A professionals can do better reviews in less time, and with less pain. This complete storage to review offering is great for users. In the words of Matt Porzio, vice president of strategy and product marketing at Intralinks, “Together, Intralinks Dealspace and Kira Diligence Engine help ensure high-stakes transactions are brought to a fast close. The partnership will save our customers time and expense and help prevent costly human error during due diligence.”
