Sell Side Advisory
Selling a business is a uniquely significant undertaking, especially for family-run companies with a high level of personal involvement. Every company sale needs to be prepared carefully. Analyzing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for the given company (SWOT analysis) as well as assessing the acquisition interest of potential buyers constitute the key issues for determing the company valuation and the feasibility of the company sale.
Our experienced professionals are on hand to assist you from the initial company value estimate and transaction feasibility assessment through to the signing of the sale contract and company exit. We guarantee thorough and continuous advisory support throughout every step of the entire deal.
Integrity and discretion our top priority in everything we do
... after all, selling a business is a matter of trust. Our policy is therefore to engage only experienced professionals to guide the entire sale process from the initial contact through to the transaction closing. Among other factors, the strategy and design of the selling process depend upon the size and market position of the company, the number of potential buyers as well as the seller’s need for confidentiality. We therefore differentiate between:
- exclusive negotiation with only one optimal buyer
- targeted negotiations with a limited number of potential buyers
- a controlled auction, in which numerous potential buyers are contacted, and the selling process follows a strict time schedule
