The Smart, Simple, Secure choice for the TMT Industry
“We have to organize due diligence for a complex, cross-border deal and we need a telecoms solution that can support us with that.”
The technology, media and telecoms (TMT) sector is one of the most active in the global market. This means dealmakers regularly having to organize thousands of pages of confidential information for due diligence on transactions of all types and sizes. Cross-border communication is a crucial consideration in TMT deals due to the often global reach of a TMT company.

Global communications are facilitated between relevant parties and stakeholders via the Q&A forum function of the data room. Whether the project involves IPO of a start-up, or the merger of two complex, global giants, dealmakers can trust the secure Merrill DataSite virtual data room (VDR).
