Orange Corporate Finance is specialised in providing companies and institutions with support and advice on matters relating to mergers and acquisitions. We have clients throughout the Netherlands as well as a number of foreign clients. We are active in a wide range of sectors, including the wholesale, industrial and service sectors, in the Netherlands and other countries. In the healthcare sector, we provide boards and regulatory authorities with advice on matters relating to mergers and acquisitions and on a range of other matters in the area of corporate finance.

The history of Orange Corporate Finance can be traced back to 1996, when hardly any M&A specialists operated in the SME segment.

Around that time, Stefan Cuppers, the founder of Orange Corporate Finance, was involved in the foundation of one of the first M&A offices to focus exclusively on providing support for acquisitions in the SME segment. Over the years, our services have expanded to include larger, more complex transactions, including cross-border transactions.

Over the years we have provided support for a great many transactions. We have had the pleasure of studying a large number of companies and industries in depth. We are proud to be able to say that in many cases we were able to exceed our clients’ expectations. Teamwork is at the heart of what we do. Our achievements would not have been possible without the efforts made by our team, our fellow advisers and the clients that have placed their trust in us and have been open to our advice.

INTERNATIONAL

Over the past 20 years we have provided support for clients on a large number of cross-border transactions, including a number of transactions for or involving listed companies. In these transactions we represented a Dutch seller or a foreign buyer, or both the buyer and the seller were based abroad.

Orange Corporate Finance has its own international network of M&A offices, and therefore has access to the latest local expertise and a local network.

Thanks to our international corporate finance network, we are able to find potential foreign buyers for Dutch clients and can provide support for our Dutch clients when they carry out international transactions. Talks do not always result in a transaction. Over the past few decades, Orange Corporate Finance has conducted talks and negotiations with prospects from a great many countries, often at their offices. These frequently resulted in a company being bought or sold. Needless to say, we obtain support from local legal and tax specialists during the preparatory phase and when carrying out the actual transaction.

SERVICES

Company valuations

Valuing a company often forms a fixed part of the support provided for an acquisition or sale transaction. Our specialists also perform company valuations for many other reasons. These include estate planning and valuations required when new shareholders join the company in the context of emigration (including for tax reasons).

Finance

In a number of cases, external finance is vital in order for your plans to succeed. Sometimes external finance is desirable as a way of optimising the asset structure within the company. We have expertise in the latest forms of finance and have our own extensive network of contacts. Whether you want to obtain a bank loan, refinance a loan, or raise equity capital or venture capital, we can be of assistance to you.

Sales

Support in selling process

Every selling process requires an individual approach. Your wishes and objectives provide the starting point for the process in which we jointly decide on the best approach for you. We carry out incisive analyses of the company and the market, and draw on our own national and international network, in order to identify relevant prospects and bring the transaction to a successful conclusion.

 

Preparing to sell a business

Making early preparations for a planned transfer of ownership increases the chances of concluding a successful transaction. In this context, creating value and making the company more easily transferable are key concepts. We are happy to provide you with advice at an early stage, which will enable us to provide you with the best possible support at a later stage when the actual transaction takes place.

Acquisitions

Support in acquisition process

Taking over a company or a division creates many opportunities, but it also entails risk. Incisive analyses, sound experience, perseverance, creativity and our skills in the area of transactions go a long way to helping ensure your acquisition is successful.

 

Acquisition strategy

You have certain objectives that you wish to achieve by carrying out acquisitions. In many cases, we also have relevant sector expertise in your specific industry. If you wish, we can act as your sparring partner to help you decide on your objectives and how these are to be translated into your acquisition strategy. We know the potential acquisition targets or can quickly identify them for you. Formulating a clear acquisition strategy and sharing it with the parties directly concerned helps avoid issues relating to opportunistic actions. Whether you are approached directly or actively enter the market yourself, you will know which criteria your acquisition target needs to satisfy.

SECTORS

Over the past 20 years Orange Corporate Finance has provided support for transactions in a wide range of sectors.
If you would like find out whether we have specific experience in your sector, please contact us.

Healthcare sector

Orange Corporate Finance has been active in various segments of the healthcare sector since 2003. We provide advice related to corporate finance and governance issues to companies and institutions in the hospital, nursing and care home, home care, rehabilitation, dentistry, orthodontics and psychological support segments, as well as to a number of independent clinics.

ICT sector

transactions in the ICT sector. Technological advances have led to the development of pay-per-use earnings models, and the trend towards increased scale is continuing. At product level the market is the European market, and sometimes a global market. Orange Corporate Finance is able to form a clear picture of the company, its business model and potential national and international targets.

Industrial sector

The offices of Orange Corporate Finance are located in Eindhoven, the Brainport region that is home to many industries and suppliers which play a dominant role in Europe. These include the high-tech, food-processing and manufacturing industries. We therefore have an extensive track record in the industrial sector.

Service sector

We have provided support for a number of transactions within the business services sector. In recent years there has been a move towards internationalisation, often within Europe, and this trend is continuing unabated. Increasingly, we have seen that service providers are expected to follow their clients in terms of international expansion and provide them with services around the world. Given the limited expectations for growth within Europe, other parts of the world, such as fast-growing regions in Asia, Africa or Latin America, are becoming increasingly interesting as areas for expansion.

Transport and logistics sector

The importance of the transport and logistics sector to the Dutch economy cannot be underestimated. A wide variety of companies are active in this sector, ranging from road and waterborne transport to national and international players that focus on 4PL services and follow an ‘asset light’ strategy. Orange Corporate Finance works for clients active in various segments within the transport and logistics sector, including a number of multinationals.

Wholesale sector

The wholesale sector operates in a dynamic playing field. Far-reaching consolidation has led to radical changes in a number of market segments. Identifying developments in good time, while taking into consideration the specific characteristics of the wholesale sector, presents opportunities and challenges. We would be happy to provide you with advice in this area.
