Mergers & acquisitions and corporate law

Added value

Kuntz & Associés has handled numerous cases of sales and purchases involving solvent companies on behalf of manufacturers or investment funds, mainly through LBO or LMBO operations.

An LBO consists, for an investment fund or a company, in acquiring a company through a holding company set up specifically for that purpose and which incurs debt. This operation has the advantage of giving the target company a new lease of life. LMBOs follow the same principle - the managers of the company purchase the company, also through a holding company which bears the debt.

The firm also manages capital restructuring operations involving the issuance of securities: stock options, equity subscription warrants, convertible bonds and bonds reimbursable in shares.

The firm can also deal with any legal follow-up work for the companies involved.
