VMP Vlasova, Mikhel and Partners took part in the joint project “Belarus M&A Deal Points Study 2019”

VMP Vlasova, Mikhel and Partners law office participated in one of the largest projects for studying the legal issues of mergers and acquisitions transactions in Belarus (M&A transactions) - “Belarus M&A Deal Points Study 2019”. The study was conducted jointly by 10 leading Belarusian law firms based on 59 M&A transactions over the past 3 years. The study took into account the experience of similar projects in other jurisdictions, as well as the results of a previous study conducted in 2010.

In a study, participants compiled and analyzed information on the most significant M&A deals in Belarus, completed from January 2016 to December 2018. The total amount of the transaction to be analyzed in the study was to exceed 500,000 euros in equivalent at the closing date (the date of the transfer of control over the acquired business). In relation to each of the transactions, participants provided answers to 84 questions covering various legal and organizational aspects of its conclusion. A detailed analysis of the information collected allowed us to combine the experience of implementing the largest M&A projects in the country and identify the most common practices of using various legal mechanisms, including international, when drawing up business acquisition contracts. The obtained data can also serve as a basis for analysis of trends in the development of the M&A market in Belarus.

The results of the Study can be found in the research report.
