A management buyout (MBO) is an acquisition in which the operating management buys the company. The operating management often knows the company best, which decreases the risks associated with financing the business and continuing the operation.
The MBO transaction progresses in the same way as other acquisitions, but the success of the MBO is heavily dependent on the preparation of the target company, the business plan, mutual agreements, the shareholder agreement, and the buyer’s financing.
We assist the operating management through the MBO process and act as an intermediary in negotiations between management and owners when necessary.
Almost without exception, external financing is needed in mergers and acquisitions. We provide assistance in financing planning, preparation of documentation related to financing, mapping of collateral, investor and financier contacts, and negotiation of financing and covenant agreements.
The value of a company is typically determined in connection with an acquisition, share issue or redemption of a minority interest. A variety of methods are used to determine the value, such as indicator-based multiplier methods, cash flow-based present value methods or reference prices. In SMEs, value is often determined by key figures and multipliers based on them.
We provide companies with valuation methods that are best suited to the company based on the financial information available and the predictability of the business.
Generational transfer becomes topical sooner or later in all family businesses. We carry out company generational transfers on a regular basis, and we know how to take the most important factors into account when planning and implementing a generational transfer.

Sometimes there is a situation where there is no clear plan for the development of the company’s business, or the plan and its implementation are not aligned.

Knowledge of best business practices and constructive criticism from an experienced professional will help to get the business back on track.
We offer professional, experienced and, above all, confidential consulting to develop the company’s business and profitability.
