Companies are dynamic, and over the passage of time a need is created for change and adjustment. These adjustments may be in the form of a business area being spun off from the original company, or into a new company, or they may be in the form of two areas being merged into one joint business. Between these extremes, lie a range of possible solutions which may result in mergers and demergers being implemented at the same time. Merger and demerger processes are often complex, and require a range of legal fields and regulations to be taken into consideration, as well as good commercial understanding and insight.
Føyen Torkildsen has extensive experience of mergers and demergers. We have participated in a number of complex merger and demerger processes, including mergers across national borders, and we have extensive commercial experience in finding good structures and solutions.
