Transaction Support

Mergers & Acquisitions

RITTERWALD advises companies on strategic transformation. As our clients, we’ll help you put your business on more effective foundations by buying or selling business divisions or whole companies.

We can advise you on mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances and on implementing capital increases in a change of control context. We will develop transactional approaches for you, support you all the way to a successful deal and advise you on post merger integration.

We’ll analyze markets and competitors, develop an effective means of testing the market and identify suitable acquisition targets or buyers. We know how to successfully structure the target of the transaction and we know what services and which contracts maximize value. We have access to reliable financial ratios from the market that enable us to assess any one-off costs, economies of scale and added potential prior to a transaction. With a great deal of experience we’ll carefully and competently plan and structure the process of integrating any companies or divisions you may acquire.

Due diligence

We perform due diligence checks for our clients with meticulous care and attention. In our buy-side and sell-side mandates we manage communications, assist in capturing and pulling together all of the information relevant to the transaction, manage the data room and handle the subsequent Q&A process.

We have profound experience of all processes on the buy-side and sell-side of a transaction.
