• Mergers & Acquisitions

Realising the perfect company acquisition

For many years BDO M&A has been a market leader in handling mergers and acquisitions in the sector of medium-sized businesses and family businesses. Each year our experienced team of advisers supports more than 100 entrepreneurs in issues regarding mergers, acquisitions, taxations and financing. Working closely with our client, we constantly focus on realising the perfect deal.

Merger and acquisition processes are hardly ever just about financial aspects. They are usually preceded by a long period of reflection. where emotions also play a part. For example, is it really sensible to sell the (family) business? Do the financial benefits outweigh the emotional loss? What are the consequences for employees, customers and your company's reputation?

At BDO we understand both the corporate and the emotional aspects of your business. Many of our advisers have grown up in family businesses and are very familiar with the strategic and emotional considerations you are faced with. We always adopt a personal approach and like to sit round the table with our clients for issues such as:

  • I am considering selling my business because there are no succession options. Is there any interest from strategic or financial buyers?
  • What is my business worth and is the business financed correctly?
  • I already have a verbal agreement on the take-over of my business. Who can help me with the financial and contractual settlement process?
  • I see many opportunities in the market. Is it better for me to continue to grow autonomously or is a take-over a better alternative?
  • I doubt about the future of my business. What is more sensible: down-size or sell?

BDO can help you with all aspects of mergers and acquisitions. If required, we can take care of the entire process from A to Z, from preparation to support after completion. For international issues we have at our disposal our global BDO network (active in more than 150 countries). Our advisers also mediate in conflicts and stalled negotiations and always realise the best deal for you.

BDO M&A operates throughout the Netherlands with advisers located at our branches in Utrecht, Eindhoven and Rotterdam.
