VALUE MATTERS – OUR CONSULTING APPROACH DELIVERS THE HIGHEST VALUE FOR YOUR COMPANY
An outstanding enterprise value
- stands for a successful company,
- facilitates the acquisition of new customers and employees,
- increases the reputation of the company and
- reveals new developmental horizons.
We support medium-sized companies and startups in increasing and realizing their enterprise value.
Successfully increasing and realizing the enterprise value can only be achieved together with the company’s stakeholders, i.e. employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders. For the first time, our consulting approach therefore bundles competencies from
- strategy consulting,
- process optimization and digitalization,
- communication consulting,
- personnel Management and
- organizational development.
As a result, the companies we support have all the important factors in view and make the best decisions to achieve a high valuation.
Realizing the enterprise value in an M&A transaction.
We support you in the acquisition and sale of companies, fundraising, management buyout, spin-off, and company succession. In doing so, we manage the entire process from the preparation of the transaction documentation to the final negotiations.
Our focus is on a transaction volume of up to EUR 50 million.
- you gain suitable strategic partners or financial investors,
- you achieve a high enterprise value,
- you will be expertly guided through the process,
- you have all the important factors in clear view.
In the interests of the company, we like to think beyond what exists and, in addition to the financial and strategic fit, always pay attention to the cultural fit.
What we do (using the example of a sales process)
Step 1: Preparation
- Analyzing the goals of the M&A transaction
- Preparing an indicative valuation
- Developing the equity story, i.e. the value proposition tailored to your company
- Preparing the transaction documents, e.g. teaser, information memorandum, factbook and business plan
- Support in overcoming potential transaction challenges
Step 2: Approaching potential buyers, target companies or investors
- Researching potential target companies, buyers, or investors (long list)
- Down-selecting the parties to be contacted (short list)
- Sending out the transaction documents to interested parties after confidentiality agreements have been signed
- Analyzing and negotiating non-binding offers
- Coordinating further communication between the parties
Step 3: Due diligence and preparation for the time after the transaction
- Collecting and preparing the necessary documents for due diligence

MAKER – the compact program:
increasing and realizing the enterprise value in a targeted manner.
Maker is a program for all companies that:
- are looking to enter into a corporate transaction in the next few months,
- want to achieve a top valuation in the transaction that stands up to any due diligence and persists after the transaction,
- achieve a turnover of up to EUR 75 million.
Maker stands for “Mergers & Acquisitions” and “Key Results”. The focus is on the success of your corporate transaction. Maker is suitable for many corporate transactions: purchase, sale, spin-off, MBO, MBI, joint venture, capital increase, larger funding rounds.

Your company can benefit from Maker in many ways:
- Sustainable increase in the enterprise value
- well-founded decision basis for an M&A transaction
- “after the transaction is before the transaction” – your company positions itself as a competent partner for future M&A transactions
- Due diligence-proof

We look deep and wide to understand the internal and external dynamics of the business and work with you to develop the best action steps.
We are committed to measurable results.
We transfer our know-how to your company, so you save time and resources on the way to your goal, and the knowledge remains anchored in the company.
We pay attention to all stakeholders of your company to ensure the sustainability of the results achieved.
