MERGERS &
ACQUISITIONS

Acquisition


When purchasing individual shares of a company or the entire company, a high degree of care is essential in both the preparation and the process. Errors here have an exponential effect.

Typical examples for acquisitions include:

  • Diversification of the product portfolio
  • Enlargement or enrichment of the value chain
  • Consolidation through the acquisition of direct competitors
  • As well as the implementation of a strategically oriented buy and build concept

Sale


Due to the fact that you can only sell once, a sale of shares has to be planned very carefully. This includes the preparation of the documentation, the selection of the potential buyers and of course a highly professional process management coupled with strong negotiating skills. This all together guarantees a successful closing of the transaction.

Typical reasons for a sale of the shares include:

  • Successions
  • Carve out of given entities of an enterprise
  • Exits for institutional investors, especially mezzanine and private equity
  • Special situations, like the sale in the course of insolvency procedures

Financing


Successful financings sets the basis to turn a promising vision into reality. Intuition and know how are requested when negotiating with potential new and existing financiers.

Typical reasons for financing are:

  • Expansions
  • Acquisitions
  • Optimization of existing financing conditions
  • Pay back/ redemption of equity-, mezzanine- or debt
