Mergers & Acquisitions are one of our most important activities. ChouChou has a track record in supporting companies, banks as well as private equity or venture capital firms in all kinds of M&A processes.
In terms of acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, business co-operations, spin-offs or carve-outs-we are the ideal partner at your side.
ChouChou consulting addresses all types of M&A processes:
1. Company acquisition – “Buy-side”
Commercial Due Diligence (CDD): A fast and pragmatic strategic assessment of the acquisition target is our strength. Based on relevant market data, we validate the target’s business plan, its future sustanability and its management performance.
2. Company sale – “Sell-side”
Vendor Due Diligence (VDD): ChouChou has a track record in creating information memorandumus and vendor due diligence documents. This also includes the identification of potential investors / buyers, the creation of sell-in presentations for specific investor types and the moderation of expert sessions & negotiatioon processes.
3. Post-Merger Integration
After a successful transaction, we support the new management in ensuring that the post-merger integration is a success. For example, we support in creating comprehensive 100-day plans, including strategy development and associated countermeasures.
ChouChou supports all parties to exploit intended synergies. While focussing on strategic and commercial support, we complement the work of lawyers, accountants and investment banks to maximise value for our client.
