Christian Moretti Quoted by Compliance Week on H-P’s Acquisition of Autonomy
Corporate partner Christian Moretti was quoted in the December 4 Compliance Week article “H-P’s Autonomy Debacle Raises Several Accounting Questions,” concerning the due diligence questions arising from the battle between Hewlett-Packard and the former executive of Autonomy. “The recent events and the likely drawn-out legal battle that lie ahead should serve as reminders to all public companies about the importance of comprehensive due diligence, especially for overseas acquisitions where cultural differences might complicate matters,” said Moretti. “This is a perfect due diligence storm,” he says. “It will be a case study for years.” “Moretti says large deals can sometimes fall victim to a check-the-box approach to due diligence. When financial, legal, banking, and valuation matters are explored often by a variety of different firms, it takes a strong internal process to paint the big picture.”
