Overview of Mergers & Acquisitions in Malta

Mergers & Acquisitions – discover malta’s M&A frameworks

Mergers and acquisitions are regulated in Malta by various statutes and regulators. The Companies Act (Cap. 356, Laws of Malta) sets out the ways in which an M&A may be effected (by acquisition or by amalgamation), and the documents, approvals and procedures required to effect each kind of M&A.

Furthermore, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA) also supervises the consummation of M&A transactions. In addition, M&A transactions that meet certain turnover thresholds are required to be notified to the MCCAA. In fact, some sector-specific regulators may also require to be notified of M&A transactions involving entities in the sectors which they regulate.

What can you expect when we advise clients on M&A transactions? Well, our first step is to advise on the optimal structure for the transaction, taking into consideration the client’s sector, goals and individual considerations.

Additionally, we draft and negotiate the main transaction agreements such as share sale and purchase agreements, asset sale and purchase agreements, provide tax advice, and assist in obtaining regulatory and other approvals as required.
