Restructuring under company law
Changes in the ownership structure are the most common reasons for company valuations. As your advisor or neutral expert in the context of transactions, we determine the value of a company and assist in the establishment of companies, capital increases in kind, conclusion of company agreements, conversions, squeeze-outs and other transactions under stock corporation and conversion law. In these contexts, we determine for you company values, exchange ratios, cash compensation or compensation payments for the shareholders. In the aforementioned activities, we can also act as court-appointed auditors and have extensive experience in this area, including hearings in appraisal rights proceedings.
We assess the financial adequacy of a purchase price or the result of a business decision process and document this assessment for you. We also assess the offered price in connection with statements by the management and supervisory boards of target companies on public acquisition and takeover offers pursuant to Section 27 WpÜG.
