Buy a company (pre-deal)

Our approach

Before investing in a company, it is crucial to study its performance and other key elements for its valuation.

Our work begins with a general review of the target asset. This makes it possible to identify various upstream value levers, as well as key risks. We support you with all our financial, operational, tax and digital expertise, in order to cover all the key points in the transaction.

Our teams of experts guide you throughout the entire process, from an analysis of the asset to the drafting of the transfer documentation, including acquisition and financing contracts, analysis of price clauses, etc.

Our support

Eight Advisory teams assist you at all stages of the acquisition, from studying its characteristics and risks to the preparation of the main documents necessary for closing the deal.

Asset analysis

We study the asset’s characteristics, such as profitability, cash generation and relevant contracts, and identify risks, such as financial, operational, geographical and third-party dependence exposure.

Asset valuation

We help you standardise asset performance data, including recurring income, standardised results and cash generation, and establish the main financial aggregates, such as EBITDA, net debt, WCR, and Capex.

Closing the deal

We support you in the preparation of transfer and refinancing contracts. We also advise you on purchase and price adjustment clauses, and every other document involved in the transaction.
