Shaping prior to a Transaction

Starting point for any M & A activity is the determination of the company's strategy.

Who does not define where he wants to go, will not get there.

The process of transfer of the company is complex and in each case individually different. Therefore, a clearly structured support in particular for the seller is of great benefit.

Vendor Due Diligence

The company analysis shows the actual state with potential weaknesses but also expandable strengths. Without time pressure, the seller receives a neutral view of his company up to a broader so-called Vendor Due Diligence. He learns potential weak points before a due diligence made by critical consultants from the buyer side.

So he is already prepared in sales negotiations on important arguments the buyer side might raise, even if he should not have previously used the findings to a positive business development and an improvement in the company's rating.

Purchase Price Relevance

The unprepared confrontation with not known weaknesses usually leads to a reduction of the selling price. The necessary effort and associated costs are calculated by us individually after a first, non-binding dialogue.

The cost of the analysis on the one hand are facing an improvement in sales strategy, often an accelerated sale and usually a better selling price. The scope of analysis can be controlled by the client. You determine whether and in how far we support the implementation.
