In the field of mergers & acquisitions in Germany (abbreviated to "M&A"), i.e. the purchase and sale of companies, there are numerous special features which must be taken into account and the precise knowledge of which can bring considerable advantages to both the company purchaser and the company seller. If, when selling a company in Germany, the company owner wishes to take advantage of the opportunities to increase the purchase price through the competition arising in a controlled bidding process, a so-called information memorandum (sales exposé) must typically be prepared, on the basis of which the various prospective buyers receive initial qualified information about the object of purchase.
