About Marktlink

Our professionals assist entrepreneurs with mergers, acquisitions, valuations, financing, restructuring, succession issues, buy-outs (MBOs), and buy-ins (MBIs). Marktlink has a presence throughout the Netherlands, with offices in Deventer, Gouda, ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Amsterdam, and assists in both domestic and cross-border transactions.

Since its inception, Marktlink has successfully completed hundreds of transactions, currently advising on more than 60 transactions every year. These years of experience have brought us in-depth knowledge of the M&A process in the small and medium business segment. We are proud to say that more than 95% of our acquisition projects result in a successful transaction. Besides our knowledge and experience, our unique approach is a key factor in our success. Our professionals manage the acquisition process in a proactive manner, always thinking one step ahead, with a clear focus on delivering optimal results.

Fixed fee structure

The course and duration of an acquisition process can be unpredictable, at times surprising clients with additional fees. Marktlink has learned through experience that a fixed-fee structure offers optimal transparency for both parties, providing our clients with comfort on what can often be an otherwise tense process.

Independent

Another unique characteristic of Marktlink is that we work independently, without affiliation with any accounting firms or banks. This enables us always to find the best rates and terms the market has to offer.

Full range of in-house expertise

Our growing team currently consists of 70 professionals with a wide range of skills and expertise: financial consultants, lawyers, accountants and business valuation specialists, all working together to represent our clients’ best interests. Our professionals meet regularly to share their knowledge and experiences and are encouraged to handle situations in a pragmatic and creative way. To ensure continuity, Marktlink assigns a ‘deal team’ of at least two professionals for the duration of every project.

Industry-wide deal experience

Marktlink provides its consultancy services across all industries and has successfully completed transactions in a wide range of industries, including construction, (wholesale and retail) trading, (business) services, outsourcing, IT, installation, and (graphic) media.
