Acquiring or selling a company is a mean for a group to implement its development strategy. M&A transactions involve parties with diverging and sometimes opposite interests: buyers, sellers, shareholders, and employees, regulatory and administrative authorities. Strategic, commercial, industrial and human stakes are very high. M&A transactions therefore require detailed methodology and professional know-how in order to be concluded successfully. When negotiations drag on, projects may fail. When a process is not well managed, transaction costs increase.
The XV Finance team has a proven track record in M&A transactions both in and outside of France and implements methodologies used by large investment banks with a pragmatic approach and a cost structure that are suitable for mid-cap operations.
The team takes into account operational, financial, legal and tax aspects, coordinate the other professionals involved (auditors, lawyers …) in order to complete the transaction with optimized timing and conditions. The client remains fully informed and in control at all times.
