Private equity investments are becoming increasingly important in business. Companies firmly established in the marketplace need capital to grow and turn their ideas into a reality. Private funds provide this capital in exchange for a stake in the company.
We advise the funds on their investments, be it in the form of a management buyout (MBO), management buy-in (MBI) or a minority stake. Of course, we provide support in the sale of a company by financial investors (“exit”).
We also help companies devise optimal finance structures. This work covers both an investment by financial investors and the provision of equity and mezzanine finance by third parties. In the case of MBOs or MBIs, we assist management with drafting and negotiating agreements with financial investors.
