Why Merrill DataSite
Great Due Diligence Services for Mergers & Acquisitions
In M&A due diligence nothing is more imperative than protecting the privacy of corporate documents and keeping buyers anonymous and segregated. From document scanning and data room access to every person and process that touches your merger & acquisition due diligence project, any breach in the chain can leave you legally exposed. Virtual Data Room (VDR) providers who outsource scanning or other functions can place your sensitive documents in the hands of a third party, potentially increasing the risk of unwanted exposure.
With decades of experience in document management and due diligence services, Merrill Corporation has created a simple, smart and secure solution - Merrill DataSite VDR solution. With Merrill DataSite you can easily execute on all of your acquisition checklist items and turn your paper and electronic files into a fully searchable, secure, and completely edit-enabled online library – no additional hardware, software, personnel or programming needed.
