Event recap: What matters in a successful corporate transaction. Tips from the field.

  • Switzerland


    What is the optimal and targeted way to conduct due diligence? What are the legal stumbling blocks of a corporate transaction? What are the options for assessing the value of a company? What are the tax risks? These and other questions were discussed at the EXPERT Suisse day seminar in Zurich "M&A: What matters in a successful corporate transaction. Tips from practice."

    The seminar was led by Marc Nufer, partner and head of M&A at Eversheds Sutherland, and Roland Ruprecht, counsel in the area of accounting. Both gave valuable insights into their respective areas in their presentations. Reto Welte, long-standing Chairman of the Investment Committee and CFO of F. G. Pfister Holding AG, pointed out in his introductory speech, amongst others, the importance of concretely addressing integration issues during the transaction and of paying due attention to personnel issues. EY partner Michael Messerli presented the due diligence process and explained the various price adjustment models. Eversheds Sutherland Tax Partner René Schreiber gave an overview of the most common tax risks in business successions.Jürg Stucker, Managing Partner of Oaklins explained in detail the advantages of a competitive M&A process and the role and possible conflicts of interest of the individual players involved in a transaction. Finally, Dr. Martin Zwyssig, Group CFO of REHAU, addressed some important aspects of integration and explained how to create added value with a clear PMI strategy.

    All in all, the very practically relevant contributions in the various disciplines of a corporate transaction contributed to the success of this seminar. We would like to thank the participants, all speakers and EXPERTSuisse for the excellent organization.
