Corporate Finance Services
INNEGO supports and advises its clients on divestitures, mergers or acquisitions
Divestitures – Sale of Companies
INNEGO assists corporations who wish to sell non-strategic subsidiaries or families / entrepreneurs who wish to sell their company because of industry evolution or succession issues. INNEGO helps the seller to prepare for the sale by planning and organising the sale process and by conducting international research on possible acquirers. INNEGO also prepares a selling memorandum describing the company to be sold in order to enable potential acquirers to formulate bidding proposals.
INNEGO subsequently contacts an agreed list of potential acquirers on behalf of the client with a view to obtaining the most favourable possible terms and fit. INNEGO assists the client in selecting the best possible offer(s), advises on possible deal structures where necessary, manages the due diligence by potential acquirers and supports the client in the final negotiations leading up to a closing of the transaction.
Acquisitions – Purchase of Companies
Companies that wish to make acquisitions have often identified possible targets, but particularly if the target is in another country, INNEGO is able to help complete information on possible targets and find ways to contact the shareholders of target companies. INNEGO is also able to help clients identify targets outside their own countries. Once a target has been identified, INNEGO is able to approach the shareholder(s) of a target, if appropriate initially without disclosing the identity of the client. If there is interest on behalf of the target to enter into negotiations, INNEGO supports the client in the negotiations, initially usually towards the conclusion of a letter of understanding, but thereafter also in respect of the due diligence, deal structure, legal agreements, regulatory matters and final negotiations. If necessary, INNEGO is also able to assist the client in raising finance for the acquisition through bank finance, mezzanine or equity.
Consultancy and Structuring Services
In its many years of advising large companies as well as entrepreneurial companies, INNEGO has built up considerable insight in corporate strategy matters and it is therefore well able to support Chief Executives and Business Owners in developing or choosing strategic options for the companies they lead. The considerable experience of INNEGO‘s board members add to its abilities to advise on strategic matters.
Through many transactions, involving large companies and privately owned companies, INNEGO has acquired considerable insight in corporate structures, investment fund structures and family wealth structuring and it is therefore able to provide its clients with advisory services in these areas that complement the advice provided to Innego’s clients by their lawyers.
