Are you planning a merger as a growth strategy; are you thinking about diversification into new sectors or about succession planning or are you looking for new types of financing or equity investments?

Numerous situations in a company can give rise to changes with the aim of improving the organizational, business or market conditions of a company. The reason can be, for example, the rapid development in global competition for change or the digital change in organizations. If strategic problems of a company are not recognized in time, the consequences are often drastic. Targets are missed and the financial performance of the company decreases gradually. If this results in unforeseeable negative events, the situation will quickly escalate into a liquidation crisis. Early analyses of the strategic, operational and financial position of your company structure is the foundation for a successful reorientation of a company. We have consultants with practical experience who will accompany you in this process in an action-oriented manner.
Sooner or later every entrepreneur has to think about their succession. Succession planning is strategically important. The success of the company should be safeguarded in the future and experience, knowledge and expertise should be preserved. A suitable successor for the company is not always found within the family, so successful succession planning should commence years before it is implemented. For prospective buyers, the question of succession financing arises. As experts in M&A consulting, we know the challenges you may encounter when selling or buying a company. Our top priority is to provide high quality support through pragmatic solutions in connection with the various types of M&A transactions, acquisitions, auctions as well as public takeover offers, joint ventures (national and international) and real estate transactions.
Growth can often be achieved by merging with competitors. However, a merger is also associated with risks. It is crucial to perform a thorough screening of the company’s tax, legal and financial aspects. Just as important, however, is a common vision and the integration of a common corporate culture, which is decisive for the long-term success of the company.
