COTRA LAW ASSISTED THE FOUNDING SHAREHOLDERS IN A BUYOUT TRANSACTION OF ARCH GROUP WITH SELECT GROUP, six PROMISING ARCH EMPLOYEES AND SOME INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS STEPPING INTO THE SHARE CAPITAL OF ARCH GROUP

CoTra Law assisted the four founding shareholders in the buyout transaction of ARCH Group with Select Group, six promising ARCH employees and some individual investors stepping into the share capital of ARCH Group. 

ARCH Group, based in Zaventem, is active in consulting and project sourcing.  It specialises in change management and assists its clients with issues related to complex transformations in the light of technological or organisational changes and strategy implementation.  The company is led by four senior associates:  Bert Kuypers, Jan Van Laer, Bert Van Daele and Frans Beckers.

To accelerate the company’s development, ARCH Group was looking for a strategic partner with the same vision. A partner that could strengthen them in four areas: people, markets, service offering and organisation.  ARCH Group found a partner in Select Group that could support it in the proposed growth in the areas of employer branding, visibility and brand recognition.  Via a buy-out construction, Select Group joins as a minority shareholder.  Six promising employees of the next generation will also be involved in the capital, in addition to some individual investors. The transaction thus partly aims to further ensure the transition to the next generation.

ARCH Group’s ambition under this strengthened capital structure is to continue its projected growth, both organically and through buy & build.

CoTra’s transaction team accompanied the four founding shareholders throughout the transaction and finalisation of all transaction documents.
