IIARF Releases New Publication Designed for Seasoned and Novice MA&S Internal Auditors

Mergers-Acquisitions-and-Sales-Cover.pngThe IIA Research Foundation has released Mergers, Acquisitions, and Sales: How Internal Audit Adds Value and Effectiveness, a practical and flexible resource for seasoned mergers, acquisitions, and sales (MA&S) internal auditors, as well as those who are new to MA&S auditing.

Written by a veteran MA&S auditor, it provides important tips and techniques for understanding the MA&S process and discusses the most effective ways for practitioners to maximize the value they add to the process from the earliest planning stages to the final reviews after a transaction is complete.

The book explains the role that internal auditors play in the process through the use of various case studies and focuses on how internal audit management — especially chief audit executives — can be more effective when it comes to strategic decision-making regarding proposed MA&S transactions. 

In addition to discussing the various challenges that can emerge during the process of conducting an MA&S transaction, the book:

  • Explains key concepts, international best practices, and controls for each step of MA&S processes.
  • Provides guidance on topics such as due diligence, business valuation, and risks associated with MA&S transactions.
  • Includes practical examples, sample calculations, and checklists.
