The Norwegian market for investing in privately owned and owner-managed businesses has grown in recent years, in line with economic developments. In addition, lower interest rates and favourable tax rules for real estate have made this asset class highly popular.
We have long and broad experience in supporting investors in the Norwegian SMB market. Although buyers are often highly conscious of the commercial reasons behind acquisitions, they often vary in their approach to financial and tax risks. Our knowledge of and expertise in dealing with these types of companies means that we are qualified to offer advisory services to private equity and investment companies that will create value throughout the life cycle of portfolio companies.
RSM can support investors in the private equity market in Norway in maximising their profit and creating value throughout the life cycle of portfolio companies. We perform due diligence and offer tax advisory advice to minimise risk and optimise the ownership structure during the acquisition phase. During the operational phase we provide audit services and proactive advice to ensure that both the owner and the portfolio companies comply with laws and regulations, and at the same time optimise structure and positioning. During an exit phase we can help prepare portfolio companies for sale, whether it be a merger, demerger, corporate conversion or other form of restructuring.
