Within TAS, we guide investors, entrepreneurs and financiers so that they can make informed investment or financing decisions. We intervene in the context of acquisitions, mergers, restructuring processes, transfers and financing decisions, offering the required insights into a company's financial performance, risks and business drivers. We do this based on an analysis of both historical and forward-looking information. Our experts offer valuation advice and due diligence support. We thus strengthen your negotiating position and you gain a better understanding of the target.

Our experts’ tasks

At Finvision, we provide professional valuations for strategic decisions such as business sales, acquisitions and restructuring. We help determine the value of your businesses and intangible assets. Our services also include buyer support for acquisition due diligence, supporting you in identifying business risks and financial and tax issues. We also carry out tax due diligence and advise on bank financing. This allows you to focus on the crucial aspects of your transactions. 

We also offer vendor due diligence and vendor assistance support, analysing your company's financial figures to provide investors and lenders with clear insights into its financial health and trends. This helps identify risks and opportunities. Our reports provide an independent view of the business and include tax aspects in a tax fact-book, helping to address issues and save time. This ensures an equal basis for negotiations and prevents surprises during the due diligence phase, improving the efficiency of the process. 

Our tools

Within Finvision, we rely on independent external databases for valuations. We thus have access to both valuations of listed companies and multiples used in comparable transactions, as well as benchmarks for royalty rates. Those royalty rates apply to brands and technology, among other things.

Within due diligence, we work with data analytics as well as BI software to process received data; we also use independent databases to benchmark KPIs. We also elaborate robust financial data books in Excel and provide clear PowerPoint reports. 

Your point of contact for Transaction Advisory Services

I have been a partner at Finvision since 2013 and have extensive experience in financial services. Before focusing on transactions, I worked as an auditor at leading firms such as Arthur Andersen and Grant Thornton. I have also been a Chartered Corporate Auditor since 2002 and have strengthened my academic background with a postgraduate degree in tax sciences and expertise in Valuations & Corporate Finance. Since 2008, I have focused on transaction support services, first at Grant Thornton and later at Finvision. With more than 15 years of experience in due diligence and valuations, I play an essential role in more than 100 deals a year, mainly as a buyer-side advisor. My mission is to guide clients through informed investment decisions with a personal and committed approach, striving for proposals that are perceived as fair and well-supported by all parties involved in a transaction.
