Mergers & Acquisitions

We support our clients in all phases of Trade Sales (sell-side mandates) and acquisitions (buy-side mandates). We help our clients with strategy definition, facilitate professional preparation and deliver structured process management and execution of M&A transactions to secure a successful Closing and optimal results. Especially for small and medium-sized companies M&A is increasingly important. Transactions are often triggered by envisaged succession plans, especially in family-owned businesses.

Furthermore IPONTIX regularly advises on spin-offs and equity carve-outs.

We often structure and execute integrated transactions, benefiting from our CROss-product experience in our other business segments, for example inclu-ding the structuring of necessary acquisition financings.

The following transactions are the focus of our M&A advisory practice:

  • Advisory of trade sales
  • Acquisitions of target companies by corporate and financial buyers
  • Management buy-outs
  • Supporting services such as company valuation and Due Diligence
  • Mediation in conflicts, for example amongst different shareholders
  • Public takeover bids facilitated by our equity capital market expertise, a further example of our cross-sectional approach
