Support during the sale process

If you want to sell your company or some of its divisions, you must first of all prepare this meticulously. As experienced M&A specialists, we know which information is of interest to potential candidates and how best to prepare it. Once a buyer has been found, we will handle the transaction completely for you - e.g. also in the context of succession planning.

First of all we assist you in answering several central questions with regard to a possible company sale:

  • How can the perfect time for a sale be identified?
  • How can the sale be optimised for tax purposes?
  • What should be taken into account when carrying out the sale?
  • Which data and information must be made available in which form?
  • How can remaining outstanding debts be avoided after the transaction?
  • How can the best sale price be obtained?
