BRC’s roll-up targets tend to be small sellers who are new to M&A. Lacking experienced advisors – or experience of their own – some may just bail out. Those who persevere still struggle with the seemingly endless process of outbound due diligence requests.
Sellers understand that the deal depends on secrecy. And every shared file, every external advisor, is an additional security risk. Unable to loop in their bookkeepers and others to help with due diligence requests, they take on this huge work burden alone.
Does the seller need help? It’s not a case of if, but when. The pressures of M&A plus overwhelmed sellers can be a dangerous mixture. There will be both confusion and points of contention – and both may get out of hand if the necessary support isn’t available.
Now it’s just a one-step program: one central location where the seller can upload everything - any file type, any size. Then the BRC CFO can easily view, reorganize and share material internally. Both BRC and the seller can check on progress anytime, in real time.
BRC can control access down to the level of individual users and rows, enabling secure collaboration. It’s all GDPR, CCPA, and APP compliant, with ISO 27001 and SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II certifications. Nothing gets out that isn’t meant to.
Datasite gives the same level of expert support to both buyers and sellers. So neither BRC nor their seller ever have to cope alone. What’s more, support is instantaneous. Now BRC completes deals up to 30% faster, because Datasite is always there for them.
