The majority of businesses will face a valuation sooner or later. Planning to sell your company or got your eye on another business? Knowing its correct value is the first key step in the acquisition process and forms the basis for further negotiations. Our specialist team provides expert support throughout the entire process and can also assist with the justification of your own business valuation in the event that this is requested by the tax authorities following the restructure of your business or business sector.
We can additionally perform the role of independent expert during court proceedings and allocations within the context of divorce or other disputes. The accurate valuation of shares, businesses or business sectors is extremely complex. Our team of specialists boasts extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of current methodologies and market developments. We use an initial kick-off meeting to discuss your company’s specific attributes, which subsequently serve as the starting point for the valuation. The comprehensive valuation report that results is an indispensable tool for the various stakeholders.
Vandelanotte conducts a concise due diligence investigation prior to the signing of the purchase intention. This provides an initial insight into the potential risks associated with your prospective acquisition. Once the purchase intention has been confirmed, we perform a more exhaustive due diligence exercise, during which our specialised team puts the company to be acquired firmly under the microscope. A smooth acquisition also requires that the appropriate legal agreements are in place. Our team ensures that the relevant financial, social and tax-technical terms and agreements are clearly incorporated into the contract. Following the actual takeover, we continue to support you in the integration or reorientation of the acquired entity within the larger group.
The sale of your company requires meticulous preparation. Our aim, after all, is to work with you in maximising your share value.
