Are you as a shareholder or director confronted with a transaction that will have an impact on your financial or shareholder position? Or are you looking for an impartial assessment of a potential transaction? Then use our fairness opinion, also known as second opinion, to make the right decision.
Our experts carry out a critical, but above all objective, analysis of the proposed transaction. For example, they determine whether the terms and conditions are fair and equitable, and whether the transaction respects the interests of each shareholder. They also check whether good governance is being adhered to.
They analyse the transaction thoroughly in financial and legal terms, conduct “due diligence” and assess the methodology and assumptions underlying the transaction.
As a shareholder, you may well be faced with transactions that can profoundly affect your position. Just think of a capital increase with dilution of your interests, a merger or acquisition, or simply a restructuring. In addition, changes may also occur in the structure, composition or operation of the governing bodies, which are contrary to sound corporate governance. In such cases, we recommend that you have us, as an external party, conduct a fairness opinion.
We help you with…
the sale of your shares
the purchase of own shares
a merger or an acquisition

a spin-off of a new subsidiary

We critically review the legal and financial terms of the transaction and assess its reasonableness.
We prepare a report with a summary of our findings and our (un)fairness opinion.
We present the conclusions to the board of directors and/or the shareholders.
Do not hesitate to send us a message: we are happy to listen to your questions and will do our utmost to answer it quickly and comprehensively. You can also choose to visit us in person in Brussels, Ghent or Antwerp. If necessary, we will put you in touch with the right experts.
