On July 25, Wavestone, a French leading consultancy, and Q_PERIOR, a consulting leader in the German-speaking market (Germany, Switzerland, Austria), announced their intention to join forces to create a European consulting champion[1].

In accordance with the timetable communicated in July, after the information and consultation of Wavestone's employee representatives, the contractual documents were signed today, August 31, 2023.

The next steps required for the finalization of the Transaction are the following:

  • Authorization of the Transaction by the Direction Générale du Trésor, in charge of controlling foreign investments in France;
  • Contribution appraisers' reports on the value and consideration of the contribution;
  • Obtaining from the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) a waiver from the obligation to file a mandatory public offer for Wavestone by the members acting in concert;
  • Public release of the Prospectus exemption document;
  • Approval of the Transaction by the Wavestone shareholders' Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM).

This EGM could take place in the fourth quarter of 2023. The approval of shareholders at the Extraordinary General Meeting would result in the completion of the Transaction and the integration of Q_PERIOR's accounts into Wavestone's consolidated accounts.
