Answer
Due diligence is your best friend.  Know their operations, know their finances, know their partners and suppliers, know their customers and market, etc.  Maintain positive control at every step and always look for strategic opportunities.  If you're looking at possible M&A activity, then hire a professional underwriter or investment bank.
