Due diligence (DD) by potential investors during equity funding
Potential investors who show interest in investing in the company need to conduct due
diligence on the company. The investor would like to have all possible information about the
company including list of customers, intellectual properties, financial position of the
company, access to key contracts of the company etc. The company looking for investors
would like to guard against risk of potential investors stealing the information and then not
investing in the company. In such situation they can give limited read only rights to the
potential investors to ensure they are not able to copy or print any important data of the
Due diligence by lenders / bankers during debt funding
Similar to equity fund raise, in debt fund raise also a company approaches many banks,
NBFCs and other lenders. Here also one or few banks actually end up lending money, but the
company end up sharing the documents with all the potential lenders during due diligence.
Not only lenders but also their employees including accountants, lawyers etc. get access to
the documents and it substantially increases risk of leakage of confidential information. VDR
protects against such risks.
Potential bidders in an eAuction
In an eAuction, the seller needs to share the details of the goods under auction with the
potential bidders. The more the data seller discloses, the perceived risk is lower for the
buyer and chances of getting better price increases. However, more data seller shares, risk
of leakage and misuse increase.
Only one person ends up winning the bid, however, the seller ends up sharing the
confidential information with all the bidders which not only increases the risk but can also
impact the value of the property under auction. Sharing information via eDataroom protects
against such risks.

companies and several potential buyers / investors. The potential buyers have to do a due
diligence on the company and its assets to be able to decide on the value. Many of these
potential buyers can be competitors of the company or can leak confidential information.
