We also advise and support clients in Management Buyout transactions.
Our transaction team advises companies in preparation for sale, starting from identifying potential negative value drivers, organizing accounting, analysis and establishing effective tax structures, reviewing contracts and also pre-sale restructuring (carve out).
We develop a strategy for the transaction which includes a valuation of the company and structuring the deal price, identifying potential investors using the Grant Thornton international network and drafting marketing materials to approach them (teaser, information memorandum). The buy-side process includes finding potential targets, initial analysis of the targets and approaching with the opportunity.

Completion of the transaction includes other aspects in addition to the signing of the agreement. For example, we assist our clients in preparing and submitting notices of concentration to the Competition Board for companies that have a larger market share.
Managing the post-deal activities depends on the structure of the transaction as well as the findings of the due diligence. This could include advice on how to mitigate the risks found during the due diligence, terminating or negotiating the changes of agreements, integrating the companies etc.

In the spring and summer of 2022, Grant Thornton Baltic advised us on the preparation for the sale of Audi sales and maintenance companies and the sale of a 50% stake to UG Investments OÜ. Grant Thornton Baltic advised us both in setting up and creating the corporate structure, negotiating, and formalizing sales conditions, as well as in various post-sale transactions, including the preparation of a merger application.
