Return on investment
Whether a company is still in the start-up phase or has become the market leader, growth and expansion require financing. If capital cannot be borrowed from the bank, raising private equity may be a good alternative. Such equity providers will put one thing first: a high return on their investment as compensation for the time and risk involved. Moreover, they will wish to influence the course of events in the company.
Adding value to the transaction
A well-considered business plan and clear agreements are of great importance to satisfy mutual expectations. Our Corporate/M&A team’s expertise covers the entire cycle of an investment with the help of private equity. Where necessary, we work closely together with the financial and tax specialists of EY Tax. The aim is always to add value to the transaction.
The Corporate/M&A team advises private equity funds, management teams and informal venture capitalists on new investments, the restructuring of existing investments or on how to realise an exit – but it also advises target companies, founders and management teams on how to raise venture capital.
