Mergers & Acquisitions

Regardless if our clients are planning for acquisitions, mergers or divestments, Partner Fondkommission focuses on making the process as efficient as possible. We are committed to fulfilling our clients’ expectations of achieving a profitable transaction with a suitable counterpart.

Due to broad business experience, a well functioning national and international network and through efficient coordination of all involved parties, we enable our clients to focus on the central parts of the deal while continuing their day-to-day operations.

We offer the following M&A services:

  • Acquisitions
  • Divestitures
  • Mergers
  • Public bids & buyouts
  • Restructurings

The process

In divestments of companies, divisions or assets, we identify and evaluate the suitability of a potential buyer based on financial, industrial and strategic properties and other factors deemed to be of importance to the divesting party. Concurrently, the relevant object is analysed in order to establish an appropriate value and to identify unique selling points and other marketing factors. With this analysis as a starting point, an optimal transaction structure is outlined, comprised either of a negotiated sale, an auction-process or a public share issue.

Partners aim is for our clients to find the right buyer at the right price, while utilising as little client resources as possible. We normally co-ordinate the entire process and its participants from early-stage valuation and analysis, through the development of information materials, identification and communication with counterparties to the signing of agreements. The same applies, in applicable parts, for merger processes.

In buy-side mandates, Partner also assists the client through the entire transaction process. This can include; definition of criteria for suitable objects, identification of possible candidates (long-list), evaluation of candidates (production of short-list), initial contacts, valuation assessments, negotiation support and transaction closure. The same applies, in applicable parts, for public bids and buyouts, where the positioning of the board and existing owners is of central importance.
