Deloitte Corporate Finance Norway

In Deloitte Corporate Finance, we provide M&A advisory to company owners, entrepreneurs and private equity clients. In close dialogue with our client, we handle every strategic, financial and tactical aspect of the process when either buying or selling a company.

We handle all the intensive workloads from the initial considerations to a successful sale

Sell-side advisory
  • Early Considerations

    Reflections of a sale often arise from a shift in generations of the founding family or with the purpose of finding a partner to support future growth through experience and financial resources. An early dialogue helps to clarify motives and expectations for a potential sale. We assess the best possible exit strategy and design a customised process based on our client’s preferences.

  • Identification of Investors

    The number of investors entering into dialogue within a sales process is based on a range of important considerations. We identify all relevant investors, both globally and locally, based on strategic fit, corporate culture, the ability to finance the investment, etc. Together, we decide on the appropriate strategy for a successful sale.

  • Preparation of Sales Materials

    The sales material is the first impression potential investors have of the company, which is why quality is essential. The material is prepared by us in close collaboration with the management team and highlights the key selling points of the company. Potential investors are provided sufficient information to submit indicative offers while ensuring that sensitive information is not exposed.

  • Market
    Contact

    We handle all investor dialogues from the initial contact to the final negotiations. Essentially, it is important for the seller to connect with the relevant counterparties to discuss the future of the company. We prepare both seller and management team on relevant topics and make sure that they are well prepared for the dialogue.

  • Negotiation and Final Agreement

    We evaluate individual offers in close dialogue with our client and negotiate on their behalf. A successful sale is obtained when finding the best possible partner for the future journey of the company while securing an attractive price and favourable terms for the seller.

Buy-side advisory

Our team of dedicated M&A professionals advises on the strategic important decision when a client is looking to acquire a minority or majority stake in a company.

We have extensive experience from both sell and buy-side advisory, which enables us to provide the best possible bid and response tactics throughout the bidding process and final negotiations. Based on our distinctive sector knowledge we thoroughly analyse and value the acquisition target and potential synergies. This approach also supports an early identification and resolution of potential issues.

Strategic acquisitions can take a company to new heights by improving, extending or transforming the current business. We assist our clients in developing, prioritising and executing a solid M&A strategy. Our global reach and insight is valuable in identifying and initiating the dialogue with attractive acquisition targets.

Our business model is based on trust and has resulted in long-term client relationships.
