What we did
We actively supported Mérieux NutriSciences during all the process: drafting of LOI, sellers and acquiror teams coordination, execution support during the Due Diligence phase (financial, tax, legal, business, environmental), valuation guidance, negotiation, legal documentation and finance integration.
Capitalmind played a key role in (i) implementing a trusted relationship between the management of Milouda & Migal Laboratories and the management of Mérieux NutriSciences, (ii) coordinating all the process without a sell-side advisor in an international context and (iii) performing a strong operating work and in-depth due diligence analysis.
