Increase enterprise value (origination and value creation)

Identifying and executing attractive transactions

Anyone seeking to increase the value of their company is often faced with a varied number of options. Only by correctly analysing the value creation potential, identifying transaction targets and correctly assessing the risks can optimal decisions be made.

Our experienced interdisciplinary team will work with you to develop the right concept to sustainably increase your company’s value.

Your concern

Planning transactions

You want to increase your enterprise value and you want to know how to increase it through internal optimisation potential or whether improvement is only possible through acquisitions? Are you looking for attractive transaction targets to complement your existing business portfolio with new products and services? Do you want to venture into new regional markets or invest in holdings? Then you need to identify potential business fields and target companies as well as investigate their market shares and market access. But that alone is not enough. Shareholder, customer and supplier relationships must also be understood. To this end, brand value must be evaluated, risks assessed and key company figures analysed. Potential synergies that can be achieved through a successful integration must also be identified.
