Public and private offerings
Our firm often advises companies that are undertaking financings by way of public offerings and private placements.
No matter whether a private placement or a public offering is involved, our professionals can ably guide you from negotiation to completion of your transactions.
From the beginning of our mandate until the closure of the transaction, our firm will help you through the various steps to be completed: letter of intent, offer letter, share subscription and underwriting agreements, financing and agent agreements, agreements between shareholders and stock option plans.
Financing agreements: We play an active role in negotiating and concluding financing agreements, public or private.
Due diligence: We take charge of due diligence, a preliminary and quasi-mandatory step towards financing transactions.
Financial packages: We help to develop innovative financial structures in order to maximize the proposed offering’s chances for success and maintain the parties’ confidence in the transaction.
