Acquisition of a German Waste Disposal Company Group by a Leading Waste Disposal Company

The Initial Situation:
A market leader in the German waste disposal sector sought to significantly expand its position in the market with a targeted acquisition. It wanted to expand its services and round off the services it offered at regional level at the time within the limits
of German cartel law.

The object of the proposed acquisition was a leading German waste disposal company with annual turnover of 570 million euros and 3,500 employees. The acquisition team from FALK & Co Corporate Finance was reinforced by experts in the Market, Risk Management Operational and Technical sectors.

Having regard to all requirements of cartel law, a comprehensive market share analysis was carried out

which investigated and assessed all matters pertaining to business operations. It also documented all relevant technical risks in a specific risk profile. On the basis of these results and an intensive exchange of information between partners, management and other appointed consultants from the auditing, taxation and legal advice fields, the acquisition was then successfully carried out.
