Deloitte Corporate Finance

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.

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.

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.

Thor Høgenhaug

I joined Deloitte Corporate Finance in August 2016 after graduating from Aarhus University with a degree in Quantitative Economics. During my time at Aarhus University, I participated in several case competitions and was actively engaged in the associative life, which laid the foundation for pursuing a career in Corporate Finance.

I cannot think of a place where I can learn and experience as much as I do here at Deloitte Corporate Finance

I chose Deloitte Corporate Finance because of the array of interesting projects, the quality of the people and the opportunities for personal development. Further, I wanted to work for a Corporate Finance company in Denmark with global presence and have the prospect of working across several industries. So far, I have worked on both small and large projects in Food & Beverages, Retail and Industrial Manufacturing. I have been challenged by and learned from both clients and colleagues and continues to be on a steep learning curve. I have enjoyed every aspect of all the projects I have worked on. When thinking of career options I cannot think of a place where I can learn and experience as much as I do here at Deloitte Corporate Finance.

Nikolaj Kirkegaard

M&A and Corporate Finance was a profound interest of mine during my studies at Copenhagen Business School. I obtained early experience with M&A from a relevant student position as well as an internship in a private equity fund in Africa. This fuelled my interest for the field. After graduating with a master in Finance and Strategic Management, I successfully applied to start my career in Deloitte Corporate Finance.

You are exposed to the top management of the client’s company on their most vital strategic initiatives

To me Corporate Finance offers a unique and highly interesting cross-field between finance and strategy. When working at Deloitte Corporate Finance you are exposed to the top management of the client’s company on their most vital strategic initiatives. Mixed with highly competent and socially open colleagues, every workweek is different, fun and challenging. Project teams are small so every team member is expected to contribute, but never without the support and guidance of your Project Manager. I feel lucky to have started my career in an environment as fun and interesting as Deloitte Corporate Finance and look forward to develop continuously through new intriguing projects.
