M&A buy-side

M&A buy-side: buying a company

There are several possibilities to fast-track your company’s growth. A strategic acquisition is one of these options. Are you considering acquiring a company but uncertain about which company to acquire? Or do you have your sights set on a particular business?

Rembrandt M&A, as an experienced mergers and acquisitions advisor, offers a unique and distinctive approach that adds value to all phases of the acquisition process. We provide guidance to parties positioned on the buy-side of the market, advising them on various options for acquiring a company.

On the basis of your most important criteria and goals, we jointly agree on an approach to achieve the successful acquisition of a business. For us, a transaction is only considered successful when both short and long-term strategic goals have been reached.

Acquisitions process

The acquisitions process consists of three phases: preparation, transaction and completion. During each phase, we keep a watchful eye on your goals and monitor progress.

1. Preparation phase

In most processes, we start by creating a profile that includes the most important criteria as well as value-determining elements and strategic goals that a potential acquisition should deliver. For an acquisition to be successful, it is of paramount importance that the information received and knowledge gained during the process are continually measured against these criteria.

Should there not be a potential candidate under consideration, we then use our own databases and (inter)national network to draw up a list of candidates that best suits your company profile. Together, we create a shortlist of the most suitable candidates who we then approach tentatively to investigate whether they are open to an introduction.

2. Transaction phase

The transaction phase mainly focuses on deeper financial analyses, cultural and commercial aspects, issuing of an offer, negotiating and documenting the agreed terms in a Letter of Intent (LOI).

If, after the first introduction, both parties wish to further investigate a possible acquisition, we send a questionnaire to obtain any necessary information. This information is then used for financial analyses, including an initial indication of financial feasibility. In addition to the financial aspects, we assess to what extent the business and its culture match your personal wishes. Thereafter, and in discussion with you, we decide whether or not to make an offer (in terms of price and terms and conditions).

3. Completion phase

The completion phase consists of, amongst other things, due diligence, drafting a business plan, and arranging financing and / or venture capital as necessary. As a final step, the transaction documentation is drawn up and signed.
