Cross border m&a deals done in the Belgian market

Corporate Finance in Europe is involved in cross border m&a (mergers & acquisitions). As Belgium is one of the countries in which we have large m&a experience we show some cross border deals here. When a company is sold the best price can often be achieved by looking for buyers in various countries. Cross border m&a services are not only for large multinationals, but also for companies with a value from 2 million till 100 million.
