M&A

Turn your vision for corporate transactions and succession planning into reality. With a well-considered M&A strategy, solid transaction preparation, an approach tailored to your specific situation, in-depth corporate finance know-how and many years of transaction experience, we will guide you in making your corporate transaction a success.

Capabilities & Collaboration

When carrying out M&A projects for companies, owners and private equity firms, we rely on our many years of experience and the highest standards of integrity, confidentiality and independence to strengthen the mutual trust of all parties involved. Our good relationships with boards of directors, investors and a major international M&A organization ensure sustainable success in corporate transactions.

Strategy

Successful companies are constantly adapting to changing markets and pursuing clear strategic goals. They plan for the long term and actively identify transactions in order to achieve the greatest possible increase in value. Great potential often emerges not only across borders but also across sectors. In this complex and time-consuming process, we support you from analysis to closing with our experience, sector expertise and corporate finance know-how. This is particularly valuable for entrepreneurs, who often face major emotional, business policy and time-related challenges. We know how to involve stakeholders — including the family — and strive for balanced and sustainable transactions with strategic partners or financial investors.

Buy-Side

Your company purchase is based on competition analysis and a clear M&A strategy. Our sector expertise provides valuable input in all phases of the transaction process. This applies in particular to evaluation through in-depth examination of the business model, the key value drivers of the company being assessed and the targeted use of sensitivity, scenario and benchmarking analyses. As part of Financial Due Diligence, we ensure that all findings are immediately reflected in the purchase price or purchase contract. We support you in structuring the transaction, carrying out Financial Due Diligence, determining the purchase price and negotiating. Finally, our IFRS expertise ensures that accounting issues (e.g. Purchase Price Allocation) related to transactions are also resolved at the highest level.

Sell-Side

Transaction preparation with relevant financial figures and solid business plans is crucial to secure a good selling price. It is also important to have a comprehensible business model and a well-prepared set of arguments. We understand the concerns of both sides and know what potential buyers are looking for. We support you in the international search for investors and buyers, in preparing and carrying out Due Diligence and in successfully negotiating the relevant contracts.
