Are you ready for the next step in the life of your business? Are you looking to take your business to the next level of growth or strategic expansion by acquiring a business? Have you identified a target but don't know how to make the first contacts? Or would you like us to look for an add-on company? As an independent firm, we have the expertise to guide you through the entire process. From preparation to execution and completion. So you can continue to build your business with peace of mind and confidence.
During the preparation phase, we can start contacting companies that you yourself find interesting. We can also actively seek out companies, approach them and gauge their appetite for an exploratory meeting. During this phase we will also make a valuation of the company based on the information available.
After preparation, it is time to sit down with the opposing party. This usually takes place after a confidentiality agreement has been signed. This gives us access to detailed information and enables us to carry out a more accurate valuation and due diligence. Of course, we also discuss the practical aspects of the potential transaction. Our expertise in a range of areas, including finance, legal, tax, social and risk management, means that we never lose sight of any aspect of the process. We can also prepare a detailed banking dossier for the financing of the transaction.
Have you reached an agreement with the seller? Then it is time to write everything down in an Acquisition Agreement. Our legal experts will document all the terms and conditions and check whether any warranties need to be included. In this phase of the purchase, we always aim for a win-win situation for both parties, so that some form of continuity can be guaranteed after the integration.
In our opinions, we rely on current legislation, interpretations and legal doctrine. This does not prevent the administration from disputing them or from changing existing interpretations.
