We assist you with mergers & acquisitions, business restructuring, corporate financing, business valuations and corporate planning. A network of specialists from various fields and the multiple qualifications of our consultants enable us to offer you comprehensive advice and support.
We guarantee you extensive legal, fiscal and business consulting throughout the entire M&A process.
Financing decisions are geared around maximising your company’s value, taking into account the tax repercussions. And when it comes to business restructurings, we adopt a proactive approach.
To ensure successful acquisition and integration of companies to the furthest extent possible, we perform a due-diligence audit to analyse and quantify the risks and opportunities associated with company acquisition. We also assist with due diligence at the seller’s end, focusing particularly on thorough preparation, and are able to apply our experience gained from assisting with purchase processes. Depending on your wishes, we can act as a comprehensive consultant in the areas tax, legal, financial and commercial due diligence, or as a team with other specialist consultants.
Integrated corporate planning is a fundamental requirement for effectively managing your company. It consists of a monthly budgeted P&L statement, balance sheet and cash-flow/liquidity statement. We don’t deliver status plans that are already outdated after a few weeks, but instead devise a programme tailored to your needs, enabling you to independently prepare a revolving plan, conduct target/actual analyses and generate projections. We also incorporate a scenario manager to ensure you don’t just detect discrepancies in hindsight, but are rather able to proactively assess the impact of alternative measures on P&L statements, balance sheets and liquidity.
Einen unserer Beratungsschwerpunkte bildet die Betreuung von
One of the focus areas of our consulting service revolves around company purchases/divestitures. We support our clients throughout the entire M&A process, from analysis, to the transaction phase, to the integration phase.
Based on an in-depth analysis of your company and the competition, we develop an acquisition strategy aimed to sustainably improving your competitive position. In the case of company divestitures, this phase serves to prepare information memorandums about your business and select potential buyers.
During the transaction phase, we take charge of making contact, valuing the business, establishing and financing a purchase price, conducting due diligence, and of course drafting/negotiating contracts and optimising tax.
When handling purchase mandates, we place particular emphasis on planning the integration process early on. We help you implement integration measures, introduce a post-merger audit to ascertain the degree to which targets have been achieved, and monitor compliance with agreements established in the purchase agreement (SPA).
Based on our long-time experience, we adopt a practical approach to business valuations, particularly in the lead-up to purchase/sales decisions regarding entire companies/holdings, and achieve realistic results. Meanwhile, our academic publications and empirical studies help further develop business valuations both in theory and practice. Courts thus hire us as experts to calculate appropriate settlement payments for mergers, profit-transfer agreements, integrations, changes of legal form, and other structural measures.
We advise you on your financing decisions relating to upcoming investments. All efforts here are focused on establishing financial balance to ensure your business can continue its operations over the short and long term. We also evaluate relevant financing alternatives from business and tax perspectives
In fiscal decision-making processes, we help out with investment planning and planning for capital requirements. And when it comes to alternative financing instruments, we highlight the pros and cons thereof, and optimise your capital structure. Upon request, we also assist you with your corporate-financing negotiations.
