Mergers & Acquisitions and Corporate Finance

 

NBB provides corporate finance solutions for its clients, working together with investment banks, venture capital firms, private equity funds, business angels networks, as well as selected Stock Exchanges, thus meeting the requirements of each operation.

 

The fast globalisation of the economy and financial and capital markets, high levels of competition, negative economic circumstances and increasing difficulties in obtaining credit from traditional sources all present serious challenges for companies.

 

It is fundamental that companies constantly rethink their growth strategies and use alternative sources of funds in order to reach a good position on the global markets.

 

NBB responds to these challenges, helping its clients redefine growth strategies for their companies through mergers and acquisitions, identifying the best solutions to raise capital.

 

Thus, under Corporate Finance, several types of transactions can be carried out, depending on the companies’ characteristics and shareholders.

  

MBO
Management Buyout

Acquisition of a company (buyout) by its management team or by its minority shareholders, with the help of external financing partners, such as private equity funds.

MBI
Management Buyin

Acquisition of a company by an external management team, with the help of external financing partners, as private equity funds.

BIMBO
Buyin Management Buyout

Combination of MBO and MBI.

OBO
Owners Buyout

Buyout in which some of the executive shareholders of the company buy one of the company’s business areas or the whole company itself from other shareholders, strengthening their position with the support of financing partners.

LBO
Leverage Buyout

Acquisition of a company, incurring a high level of debt.

FUND RAISING

  • Start-Up: Financing to support the development of the product or marketing strategy.

  • Early-Stage: Financing during the early stages of company development for companies who have not yet reached break-even point.

  • Expansion: Aims to support the growth of an established company, such as its international expansion, the increase of its production capacity or the development of a new product or service.

IPOs

  • Capital raising to finance the growth strategy, via the capitals market. This is possible by means of an IPO or a listing on the NYSE Euronext’s Alternext market. This type of operation presents many advantages, such as:

    • Raising financing via capital increase; 

    • Higher liquidity; 

    • Enhanced company value; 

    • More opportunities for global strategies; 

    • Awareness and credibility on the market; 

    • Promotion and visibility; 

    • Staff motivation.
