Public Takeover Bid

IPONTIX advises corporate strategic buyers and financial investors planning a takeover or majority shareholding of an exchange listed company. Tactical advice regarding the optimal procedure and strategy of the planned transaction is of major importance in these mandates.

Amongst other relevant topics in the process we support potential buyers regarding the different possible public takeover bid procedures. Alternatives are unsolicited purchase offers, unsolicited takeover offers and mandatory offers in cases a controlling majority (30% shareholding) has already been reached by the buyer. We also advise clients regarding the requirements of BaFin (Federal Agency for Financial Market Supervision).

We conduct the structuring of the full public takeover transaction process similarly to an M&A process, facilitated by our capital market expertise. In numerous transactions the capital market specialists of our team are also mandated to evaluate and optimise specific aspects of a public takeover, especially by financial investors.

IPONTIX has a very close working relationship to all relevant investment banks in the German-speaking market offering the equity-capital market services necessary for public takeovers.
