OMNICAP differs from most traditional M&A firms thanks to its expertise in partial sales.
OMNICAP can advise in the buy out of one or several shareholders, in the context of a family succession or as part of the streamlining of the shareholding by share transfers within the family or by liquidity provision to certain shareholders.
The partial sale is often a very useful solution in the diversification of family wealth that often largely consists of the family business. A partial sale can also be useful when the sale of the company cannot be executed in optimal circumstances because the company is not ready for a sale or because the market conditions are not favorable.
Following scenarios are the most obvious in case of a partial sale:
- Sale to existing shareholders
- Buy back of the shares by the company or a holding company
- Sale to a financial investor
OMNICAP also uses this expertise for exits between partners in a partnership.
