The acquisitions process

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

1. Preparation phase

In most processes, we start by creating a profile that includes the most important criteria, value-determining elements, and strategic goals that a potential acquisition should deliver. For an acquisition to be successful, it is paramount 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 databases and (inter)national network to draw up a list of candidates that best suit your company profile. Together, we create a shortlist of the most suitable candidates, which we 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).

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.
