We offer independent advisory services on corporate transactions such as disposals, acquisitions, or financing projects. Our core competencies relate to mergers & acquisitions and corporate finance advisory. Our service offering caters to entrepreneurs, medium-sized enterprises, corporate groups, and private-equity investors. We advise on entrepreneurial successions, strategic transactions as well as on special situations or on capital raising. We are deeply involved in the German market. Internationally, we have long-lasting and proven relationships in several countries, including the U.S. and China. We co-operate closely with Doertenbach & Co.

BUSINESS PRINCIPLES AS AN ADDED VALUE

OUR MISSION
We value our profession and its rewarding challenges. Excellent customer feedback encourages us to build on our approach. We are free to determine our own views. Standing by our word and the results of our work, we act based on personal commitment, distinct judgment as well as on the ability and perseverance to bring transactions to a successful completion. As a result, we make sure the flexibility of an independent firm is combined with the fulfillment of superior demands regarding competencies, efficiency, international scope and access.

OUR CLIENTS
Through our long-standing experience and market presence, we are familiar with a wide range of clients, including private-equity investors, medium-sized enterprises and particularly owner-managed businesses, as well as corporations and holdings, both nationally and internationally. According to project requirements, we are able to combine the necessary skills and put them into effect. We are not focused on certain deal sizes: We have the expertise and the capacity to execute larger transactions and we are free to carry out smaller ones, as well.

FOUNDATIONS OF OUR WORK

OUR TRADITION
Our existing relationships with business partners and market players have largely been developed over many years and are built on sustainability and mutual trust. The personal network of our senior team is reinforced by the access we gain through our business partners, particularly in the German “Mittelstand,” and through the close cooperation with Doertenbach & Co. We relish the opportunity to build on our generational perspective.

OUR INTERNATIONAL FOCUS
We have established a partnership with the advisory firms CKII – China Kapital Investment Intelligence Ltd. (Shanghai), and Capital Advisory Services (Bad Homburg) as an integral part of our team. Both are well acquainted with Chinese and German business culture. In addition, we are regularly building on long-lasting relationships in the U.S. and several European countries, setting up joint teams according to project requirements ranging from research support to investor access and co-advisory team structures. Our partners are established players in their local markets with excellent relationships.

INTERNATIONAL SCOPE

ADVICE ON TRANSACTIONS
Our work covers management of the entire project and the steering of the process. We also identify and approach potential partners and investors; carry out the financial planning, analysis and the enterprise valuation; and prepare and co-ordinate the due diligence, the draft of the equity story and the process documents, such as information memoranda and presentations. The preparation of committee papers, the design of transaction structures, the evaluation of alternative strategies and options, as well as the conduct of negotiations, are also part of the service.

CORPORATE FINANCE / DEBT ADVISORY

ADVISORY ON FINANCING TRANSACTIONS
We advise on the structuring and implementation of corporate financing projects in the context of growth financing, acquisition finance, the funding of shareholder buyouts, refinancing of existing capital structures or financial restructurings. In the process, we take on the evaluation of funding structures and alternatives, the preparation of business and financing plans, the approach and selection of potential partners, as well as the management of the financing process and the negotiation of the terms. In carrying out these projects, we additionally draw on the expertise of our debt advisory partner.
