Corporate takeovers: how to bear, value and finance these?

KPMG Accountants would like to invite you to an exclusive workshop and afternoon of networking.

6 October 2016, 3:30PM - 7:30PM, CET

KPMG Accountants, in collaboration with KBC and ParticipatieMaatschappij Vlaanderen (PMV), would like to invite you to an exclusive workshop and afternoon of networking on the theme of "Corporate takeovers: how to bear, value and finance these?"

During this afternoon workshop, you can participate in two of the three workshops listed below:


Workshop 1: What is the value of my company? by Patrick Valckx, Partner, KPMG Accountants.

Are you curious about the value of your company? Many entrepreneurs will ask themselves at a given time what their many years of work can be valued at now. Value and price are, however, two truly different concepts, also in the corporate takeover market. The takeover price that is ultimately paid is always the result of a negotiation process.

Various valuation methods and calculation models exist to determine the value of your business. And various risks, the strengths and weaknesses of your company have a significant impact on the value or price. This may include balance sheet ratios, strategy, market, organization, fiscal matters, legal structure, client package, production process, running claims and quality of the profits, etc.

In this workshop, we will discuss in clear language and with a practical approach, the various valuation methods currently available, the possible pitfalls involved in corporate takeovers and offer 10 recommendations.


Workshop 2: Will your family continue to be the owner of the company? by Vic De Bie, KMO Adviser and Nancy Sterkens, Takeover Financing Adviser, KBC

  • How large must my piggy bank be in order to live comfortably from now on?
  • How much can and do I want to give?
  • How much must I cash in from the sale of my company?
  • Are all of my children interested in my company and how will the transfer of my company fit into my inheritance planning?
  • Should I also transfer ownership of the company building as well?
  • What rights will my children's partners have?
  • How much will the bank finance and how will this be paid back?
  • Which parameters are important to the bank?
  • Can the seller already begin to tinker with these parameters now?
  • How can the company be prepared to make the financing achievable?
  • Are there solutions available if the buyer has insufficient resources?
  • What safeguards apply in such a financing?

KBC presides over a wealth of expertise in corporate takeovers and is happy to answer all of the above questions.


Workshop 3: Takeovers and growing with financing from PMV, a Flemish do and dare company by Alex De Ridder, Account Manager Corporate Investments, PMV

PMV is a do and dare company that shapes the future of the Flemish economy. PMV 'does' this as an adviser and 'dares' to do this as an investor. PMV finances promising firms from their early beginnings through to their expansion and internationalization.

  • Which instruments does PMV have to offer?
  • Should I choose PMV or a bank, or can I approach PMV and a bank together?
  • How does PMV look at a credit file?
  • What are the advantages of a subordinated loan?
  • How can I strengthen my own contribution?
  • What is the advantage and working method of the state guarantee?
  • What are the advantages of the win-win loan?
  • Is having a 'mix' of various forms of credit possible?
  • How can I submit a file?

PMV will explain how it operates as well as some products that are useful for corporate takeovers.
