Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions is responsible for structuring and executing a wide range of complex domestic and international transactions including acquisitions, divestitures, mergers, joint ventures, corporate restructurings, shareholder relations, recapitalizations, spin-offs, exchange offers, leveraged buyouts and defences against unsolicited takeover attempts. M&A also establishes and maintains strategic dialogues with existing and potential clients, provides financial advice and solutions on strategy problems and assists clients in achieving short- and long-term strategic objectives.

We select and value targets for our clients; we determine the value creation potential of the transaction; and we provide full execution support from early discussions to negotiations and closing.

For example, if, as the result of a corporate strategy engagement, we have helped select an acquisition target for a client, we might start by preparing all the “outside-in” material required to structure a concrete deal proposal. We will then facilitate the formal approach; advise on an optimal execution process and timetable; coordinate the work of other advisors leveraging their specific knowledge and contributions; and play the center-forward role in deal structuring, valuation, due diligence and elaboration of the joint industrial plan.

By combining deep industry knowledge with world-class M&A execution skills, our company helps a client implement the growth path set out during the preparatory strategic phase.

– Developing a value­ creating M&A strategy;

– Identifying the optimal structural solution for a transaction;

– Developing a full transaction valuation;

– Performing commercial due diligence;

– Performing Legal Due Diligence
