S&P Mergers and Acquisitions Logo

This is how we proceed.

As a matter of principle, S&P will act on the basis of exclusive mandates received from one side only, i.e. the acquirer, vendor or partner in a merger in whose interest the intended transaction is to be undertaken for the best possible result.

Due to its status as an independent firm, S&P is free of any conflicts of interests and guarantees absolute confidentiality. While carrying out its mandates, S&P stays in constant personal touch with its clients.

The remuneration for services rendered by S&P is normally based on a retainer as well as an additional success fee resulting from the individual value of the transaction.

As a rule, the initiation and conduct of the transactions occur in four stages.

Analysis and
  S&P will conduct a systematic analysis of the problem and -together with its client - define the specific criteria for the intended acquisition, divestment or sale of a company. In case of a divestment, S&P will present a descriptive memorandum.
and contact
  Possible candidates will be identified. This can be preceded by a market analysis, if necessary. The appropriate companies will then be contacted by S&P. This occurs in close coordination with the client. The identity of the client and his company will only be revealed after a confidentiality agreement has been signed.
Negotiation and completition
  S&P will initiate negotiations with the candidates and be actively involved until the completion of the project. S&P will consult the client concerning the relevant contracts.
  Upon special request, S&P will advise concerning the integration of the newly acquired, sold or merged company. This can be realized, for example, through a membership on the advisory board or the board of directors.
