Mergers, Transfers and Acquisitions
The journey of an entrepreneur is made up of a series of steps, opportunities to be seized, situations that have to be faced and solved. You may therefore have to sell your business or, conversely, invest in a new structure.
Passing on or taking over a company, knowing its value, securing the handover, are all crucial issues that you need to master in order to prepare your future.
Steps not to be missed
When embarking on a transfer or acquisition transaction, it is essential to ask yourself the right questions beforehand and then define precise objectives. For example, in the case of an acquisition, what is at stake? Gaining market share? Acquiring new expertise? Diversifying the portfolio of services or customers? What are the main advantages my company offers in case of a transfer?
