Mergers and Acquisitions (Deals)

Successful acquisitions and the search for acquisition targets

Mergers and acquisitions: we actively shape transactions

Sustainable growth is becoming an ever greater challenge in the disruptive market environment. In order to remain successful over the long term, companies must recognise changes in the market at an early stage, acquire new customers and open up new business areas. Mergers & acquisitions are one possible solution. But transactions are complex and need to be well thought out and planned. Many questions emerge. How do you identify the ideal transaction property? Is the timing right? How do you prepare your deals in a strategic way? And how do you ensure that transactions are not only worthwhile in the short term, but also generate sustainable value-added contributions? We know the answers and ensure a smooth process.

Transactions also play an essential role in issues surrounding company succession or the focus on core competencies. But how do you find the right investor?  Which parts of the company divisions and assets should you dispose of? And how do you achieve optimal framework conditions in a disposal?
