Restructuring and acquisitions involves many steps and decisions to make. For example, assessment and analysis on the value of the company, business negotiations, target analysis, shape of purchase agreement and contract, restructuring and tax counseling.

 

These major changes require careful planning, structure and clear goals. It is essential to have experienced consultants who can give good advices. Here at Talenom, you have a partner with many years of experience of ownership restructurings.
