The potential for increased efficiency and access to markets is expected to bring renewed growth and activity for European M&A in 2002. However, Europe's diversity of cultures and practices still present the M&A practitioner with a unique set of risks. This new book examines these risks and proposes strategies for overcoming and managing them. It is divided into two sections with the first examining the principles and practices of M&A in Europe including: The financial due diligence process Improving the chances of success for post-merger integration Specific issues for US investors and Pan-European employment and competition law issues. The second section contains analyses of key markets, examining the dominant factors affecting M&A in that country. This includes topics such as sectoral overviews, valuation methods, market peculiarities, employment law, the regulatory framework, documentation and competition issues. For anyone working on or considering a European M&A deal, this book is essential reading. It will ensure you minimise the risks and maximise the chances of a successful deal. Published in association with 3i Attorneys at Law Borenius and Kemppinen Landwell PricewaterhouseCoopers and Weil, Gotshal and Manges.
