[DIGITAL] 17.11.2021: Squeeze-outs valuations - Insights and challenges (in collaboration with Alvarez & Marsal Deutschland)

Global M&A volumes hit new record levels in 2021. In public takeovers, acquirers often seek to reach 100% ownership in the target company which can be accomplished with a so-called "squeeze-out". Squeeze-outs are characterized by a majority shareholder forcing minority shareholders to transfer their shares to the majority shareholder against their will. For the transfer of shares, the minority shareholders are granted an appropriate compensation which is the higher of the fundamental firm value and the (volume-weighted) average stock price. The appropriate compensation is typically determined by an external appraiser.


  • Legal requirements for squeeze-outs
  • Determination of cash compensation
  • Applicable valuation methods
  • Case study

Goals of the workshop: 

The guest lecture will provide valuable insights into the practical valuation exercise in squeeze-outs. At the end of the guest lecture you will learn the legal requirements for initiating a squeeze-out and the approach to determine the appropriate compensation. In particular, we will talk you through the specifics of deriving the fundamental firm value as well as the (volume-weighted) average stock price.
