Victor Hugo Gomez, Deutsche Börse AG
Strategy & Innovation Manager

"I wanted to complement my MBA education (corporate finance and M&A) – so, after a thorough search, I decided on Vlerick’s ‘Structuring & Financing M&A Deals’ programme. Which turned
out to be a very sound decision! Not only is the quality of the programme very high, but the focus on real-life cases and the practical aspects of the M&A process makes it very attractive for professionals and practitioners. I left Vlerick feeling well-prepared to manage the M&A process from beginning to end – so I recommend this programme highly.”

"Structuring and Financing M&A Deals is a unique programme that contains all ingredients for professionals, directly or indirectly involved with acquisitions. All aspects, going from valuation, financing, preparation until integration of an acquisition are covered. Inspiring faculty in combination with quality material, exciting business cases and relevant practical examples are completing the picture. Highly recommended!”

 

Kris Bloemen, TDL Group Houthalen
Chief Financial Officer

"The course has given me new insights into financing models, both the refurbishment of known formulas and new approaches were extensively discussed. Professors and guest speakers provided a solid academic foundation with a clear link to practice. Meanwhile I am successfully using different techniques in our firm. The required effort, which this course surely demands, is more than worth it.”

  1. Strong growth in Belgian mergers and acquisitions market

    2015 and the beginning of 2016 were characterised by a pronounced increase in the number of transactions in the Belgian mergers and acquisitions market. Demand is greater than supply, stimulated by easy and cheap access to finance and greater availability of financial resources to investment companies. Furthermore, the persistently low interest rate environment means there is increased interest from family investors, wealthy individuals and foreign private equity funds in Belgian medium-size enterprises. It is therefore not surprising that the prices paid are increasing across all sectors and business sizes. These are the findings from a survey of 142 Belgian mergers and acquisitions experts into their experiences over the past year.
  2. Family companies more open to private equity

    ‘Keep it in the family.’ The time-honoured motto of family companies has applied less and less in recent years, and that includes their funding. All around us we see increasing transparency and openness to the outside world, and family companies today are not immune to this. Recent research in cooperation with our Chair Partner Gimv provides a nuanced picture of family companies and their attitude to private equity.
