Executive manager

Assisting managers in an efficient way requires guiding them in a financial and legal environment they are generally not familiar with.

Issues

  • Assistance in equity investment and exit
    • Implementation of the investment
    • Access to capital (stock options, free shares, etc.)
  • Assistance in negotiating a shareholders’ agreement
    • Liquidity clauses
    • Involvement in the governance
    • Management packages
  • Pre-litigation and litigation (judicial disputes / arbitrations)
    • Litigation in the event of an exit before liquidity

When assisting executive managers who have access to the capital, STANCE acts as a spokesperson in order to preserve the negotiations from interfering with their day-to-day relationships with the CEO.

Business cases

  • Partnering with a financial sponsor or a corporate shareholder
    We have been advising a healthcare group under LBO for almost 20 years on all aspects of their contractual relationships with their financial and corporate partners. We assisted them in their acquisitions and successive buy-outs which enabled the management team to increase its interest into a majority shareholding, before the group was sold to a competitor in order to create the second largest firm in this branch of industry.
  • Pre-litigation
    One of our clients who was the CEO of a group under LBO was dismissed, a decision that created a conflict between the shareholders. We suggested and obtained the shareholders’ consent for the appointment of a mediator who was selected because of his knowledge of the issues at hand and of the persons concerned, while being independent and respected. He succeeded in re-establishing a dialogue, which was key to finding a global liquidity and finally settling the dispute.
