M&A – Mergers, Acquisitions and Joint Ventures
Mergers and Acquisitions, M&A in short, refers to the consolidation of companies or assets. While several types of transactions can be classified under M&A, a merger means a legal consolidation of two entities into one entity, whereas an acquisition refers to an occurrence in which one entity takes ownership of another entity’s stock, equity interests or assets. In addition to M&A, Hästö & Co’s knowledge also covers joint ventures, which are business arrangements in which two or more parties, typically by shared ownership, share the risks and returns of a specific business project.
At Hästö & Co, Partner Markus Engberg is in charge of the M&A practice. Other contact persons are Mirko Pennanen and Karoliina Skyttä, who are also able to answer to inquiries regarding our M&A and/or joint ventures practices.
