Transaction Support

A successful investment into Renewable assets begins with a clear understanding of target sectors of interest, related to an investment strategy. Next step is systematic lead generation and thorough assessment of the PV Solar, Wind, Hydro or Biogas/biomass assets. Once a promising target is identified, the quality of the due diligence process becomes a key factor. We deliver Technical, Financial & Tax as well as Legal due diligence. As the assets come from various company cultures we act so the transaction flows smoothly.

EXIT SUPPORT

Sooner or later, every private investment will culminate in an exit—either the sale of the asset to another company or an IPO on the public capital markets. Exit is an all-important moment that, if successful, will leverage the value the private equity firm has created, thereby justifying the original investment decision. Planning exit strategy doesn’t start at the moment of sale. Private equity owners need to think about the exit a good 18-24 months ahead of time and start making moves today that will position the assets for sale in the future.
