When the company is sold, the result of the analysis will lead to the so-called information memorandum (IM). In the sales memorandum relevant information is included that is important for the buyer. BC Finance can be helpful in drafting the information memorandum. For Dataroom business, BC Finance works together with Imprima, an international Dataroom company with an office in Amsterdam: see: www.imprima.com
If you are looking for a suitable company, BC Finance will map out the criteria that must be met. Such as type of industry, company profile, size and so on. The company to be acquired cannot be viewed separately from the market in which it operates.
What developments are there in these market, who are the most important players and how are the industry averages. On the basis of all this information, a transparent picture of the potential of the acquisition candidate is created.
What is the value of your company? A logical question if you want to sell your company. But even if you want to buy a company, you want to know the value. In both cases a valuation is essential. BC Finance specializes, among other things, in the valuation of companies. There are a number of ways to perform a valuation. We are aware of the different valuation methods that are applied. We usually (but not only) work with the DCF method ourselves. This method is also widely used in practice.
BC Finance can advise you on a merger or joint venture. The valuation of both parties often plays a very important role. Moreover, the counterparty often hired an adviser and the negotiations can be conducted independently of emotion. In the case of a merger or cooperation, managements often have to work together for many years and then it is nice if external parties can 'get the hot coals out of the fire'.
In mediation, the parties enter into discussions with each other under the guidance of an independent third party. For shareholders, many conflicts concern disrupted relationships between themselves, but also the strategy to be followed and whether there are differences with regard to the valuation of the share packages. Many things have already been recorded by means of a shareholder agreement but can often lead to considerable emotions. To discuss with the parties seems logical, but when emotions run away with the parties, that is no longer possible.
