Corporate Finance

 

Your financial advisor in all M&A related matters

We offer advice on divestitures, acquisitions, MBO transactions, restructuring companies and business functions and their ownership, financial analyses, equity or debt financing, PPP projects, valuations and ownership strategies.

Divestitures

We take the overall project responsibility for the transaction. We typically prepare process documentation and valuation, advice on tactics, manage communication with counterparties, support in transaction negotiations and decision making and co-ordinate the process and other advisors’ work. 

Our involvement starts from assisting on developing the optimal sales process and tactics and creating the most compelling equity story for the business being sold. We advise on choosing the right sales process, which may be a negotiation between two parties, a targeted sales process, or an auction process.  We assist all the way through from marketing materials documentation and buyer contacting to final negotiations.

Acquisitions

We take on the full responsibility for the acquisition process and tailor our services according to your situation. It may be a targeted acquisition and approaching a company directly or an auction process where a target company is marketed for sale by another investment bank. 

On acquisitions, our services include coordinating the acquisition process and other advisors’ work as well advising on tactics, valuation and in negotiations. We typically also assist in financial modelling, evaluation of synergies, providing comments on due diligence reports you have commissioned, transaction financing and selecting the optimal purchase price mechanism.

We also give advice in situations where you wish to diversify your operations, internationalise, or move up or down the value chain through acquisitions working from long lists to short lists to execution of an acquisition.
