Integration Planning with Insufficient Information

    We have a particularly interesting edge case wherein we are taking private a public company.

    Due to UK take-private laws, any information disclosed in due diligence becomes available to any other bidder… which means there are some practical limits on what you find in due diligence, as you don’t want competitors to swoop in with a superior bid and kill the deal, but it *also* means that some key decisions around integration planning necessarily lag until you can get protected information. In a typical exchange between two private companies, we’d have a secure site where materials can be shared up until close… that’s much harder to negotiate here because of the particular nuance.

    Anyone have guidance or suggestions on how to adequately plan an integration pre-close when diligence information is more substantially limited than a comparable private-to-private deal?
