Sale by Controlled Auction

Client: Seller

Industry: Child Care

Wavering between growing autonomously or as part of a bigger group, a regionally operating high-end child care organization decided in favor of the latter option. The shareholders, also directors, opted for a coordinated management system and decided to sell all shares by controlled auction. Based on an information memorandum (co-authored by Nederhof) five larger potential buyers were asked to submit non-binding offers. Exclusivity was awarded to one candidate and the deal was closed successfully. Throughout the entire transaction Nederhof acted for the seller, completing the process in an efficient six-month turnaround.
