Equity Capital Markets

Wij hebben uitgebreide kennis van én ervaring met beursnoteringen in alle belangrijke rechtsgebieden, waaronder:
  • Euronext (o.a. Amsterdam, Dublin, Oslo en Milan)
  • New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
  • NASDAQ
  • London Stock Exchange (LSE)
  • Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Deutsche Börse)
  • Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE)

Nederland is een aantrekkelijk vestigingsland voor ondernemingen die een beursnotering ambiëren, zowel hier als in het buitenland. Veel Nederlandse ondernemingen zijn ook genoteerd op buitenlandse aandelenbeurzen zoals bijvoorbeeld de NYSE. Nederland biedt een robuuste regelgeving, en een rechtsstelsel dat voorziet in solide maar flexibele governance-modellen (waaronder bestuursmodellen en meervoudig stemrecht).

Wij adviseren cliënten, waaronder uitgevende instellingen, aandeelhouders en joint global coördinatoren/underwriters en assisteren hen bij de uitdagingen die verschillende soorten transacties op de aandelenmarkten met zich meebrengen, zoals:
  • Beursgangen (IPO)
  • SPAC’s
  • de-SPAC-transacties en andere fusies
  • uitgifte van rechten
  • aandelenemissies
  • onderhandse plaatsing
  • openbare biedingen
  • openbare overname, inclusief vooraf goedgekeurde herstructurering
  • inkoop van eigen aandelen

Debt Capital Markets

De wijze waarop ondernemingen hun financiering inrichten, hangt sterk af van hun specifieke behoeften. Ons Debt Capital Markets Team assisteert bij het neerzetten van de juiste juridische structuur voor de bedrijfsvoering van onze cliënten. Daarbij adviseren zij bijvoorbeeld zowel over stand alone bond issues als bank-bond financieringen. Het team was één van de pioniers in de advisering van Nederlandse bedrijven over private placements (USPP’s) en heeft hierdoor directe kennis en ervaring van de aandachtspunten voor issuers van deze producten. Daarnaast adviseert het Debt Capital Markets Team ondernemingen en begeleidende banken bij alle overige debt capital structuren zoals bijvoorbeeld High Yield Notes. Gelet op het grensoverschrijdende karakter van het merendeel van deze financieringen werken wij altijd nauw samen met gerenommeerde experts in andere jurisdicties.
