It is above all the complexity of transaction processes that means a big challenge for companies. In order to successfully conclude corporate transactions such as carve-outs, an exact knowledge of the processes is just as necessary as comprehensive detailed knowledge of the different sub-aspects – economic, tax-related, financial and legal. Our transaction experts support you during the entire transaction process, work out individual solutions and point out risks.
There are many reasons for the purchase of a complete company, of parts of a company or for the merger of two companies. We advise you and support you during the clarification of the question as to whether the company to be purchased or the merger corresponds to your own expectations regarding opportunities and risks and what purchase price is appropriate.
Triggers for the sale of companies or business segments can, for example, be the changes in the markets, technological progress, make or buy decisions, globalisation or even business sector consolidations. Another possible reason is that the management’s return on investment targets are not being met in certain areas of a corporation where core activities are not involved. We analyse the situation jointly with you and work out the correct steps for you.
