Going Private

For several reasons, exchange listing does not remain reasonable for some public companies in view of the costs and benefits of listing. We help to evaluate the pros and cons of a continued listing vs. a going private, and we have long experience in the structuring and execution of Going Privates.

We also advise Private Equity funds targeting the acquisition of a public company and possibly later going private. As a first step we regularly conduct a feasibility study evaluating the chances and risks of an envisaged going private. Given an attractive profile for a going private and a realistic set-up for an acquisition of a sufficiently large shareholding in the company, we conduct the complete process management as a second step.
