Merger & Acquisitions
Selling a Business
We will analyze your business and recommend the best way to position and communicate your company or project as an attractive investment opportunity. To get there, we will work intensively with your team to formulate and document your business plan based on extensive research. We will prepare suitable financial marketing documentation and draw up a list of prospects. We will maximize the number of potential bidders and ensure a competitive environment while enabling you to control the process and the outcome.
Buying a Business
We thoroughly research the opportunity, advise you during the negotiations and assist in structuring the investment. We provide unbiased resources and independent judgment. We are able to quickly complement your in-house resources and capabilities.
Joint Ventures & Cooperation Agreements
You can grow your business and enhance its attractiveness to investors and lenders on a continuum of possibilities, structures and vehicles. A joint-venture agreement may not give you full control but it will enable you to get things done while using less of your own resources. Besides the technical and financial aspects we will advise you on the interpersonal characteristics of leadership, organization and management.
When discussing your proposal with investors and banks you need impeccable documentation with presentations that are clearly written and easy to understand. We help you structure the substance of a financial transaction, prepare presentations and negotiate the documentation with financiers and lawyers.
We help with the realization of the solutions we have designed and planned on your behalf. We provide full risk-assessment and cost-benefit analysis to understand the ramifications of the options. We assist in the structuring, negotiating and the bringing to life of complex solutions.
