Buyouts and exits: Belgian trends

Linklaters contributed to IFLR's recently published 2011 guide to private equity & venture capital. In this article, Arnaud Coibion, David Ballegeer and Henk Vanhulle analyse recent trends in Belgium’s buy-out market.

This multi-jurisdictional guide, published in association with the European Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (EVCA) and the Hong Kong Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (HKVCA), presents relevant legal and tax issues for the private equity sector.

This guide is of interest for private equity firms, banks and corporate groups alike.

The Belgian chapter, which can be downloaded as PDF using the link below, highlights some trends that have developed in the buy-out market in the past year, from a corporate, finance and tax law viewpoint. The issues discussed in this article remain highly relevant for the less promising last quarter of the year, which is likely to be impacted by the short supply of debt financing.
