Mergers & Acquisitions

The takeover of a company by another company, the purchase of a company or parts of a company by a new managing director (management buy in) and the sale of a company from the previous shareholder to the current management (management buy out) are fixed components of the small and medium-sized business sector.

These transactions are as diverse as the companies affected by the transactions themselves.

In addition to a standardized approach, this requires one thing above all: an excellent understanding of the occasions and the motivations of the people involved. While company acquisitions and disposals in the classic Merger & Acquisition follow fixed rules of the game, we see quite different needs and thus quite different consulting concepts in the case of small and medium-sized companies.

There are many reasons for the sale or purchase of a small or medium-sized company or a part of it, such as

  • the desire for inorganic growth 
  • the expansion of the product or service range 
  • the optimization of the vertical range of manufacture or 
  • lack of suitable successors and 
  • the desire to become an independent entrepreneur through a takeover. 

These are just a few examples that show that the purchase or sale of companies can also be a sensible means of achieving entrepreneurial objectives for small and medium-sized companies.

Regardless of whether you are a buyer or a seller, with good and thoughtful preparation, you anticipate a variety of issues and areas of discussion that can become troublesome, disruptive, price-influencing or even a deal-breaker in the ongoing process.
