In the analysis phase, we create a project plan together with you. We use a specific due diligence software to determine an initial shareholder value that is supported by in-depth market analysis as well as interviews with key employees. Identification and evaluation of possible candidates for an MBO completes this stage.
Based on the data of soft and hard facts, we develop different succession scenarios, which we thoroughly evaluate together with you. This provides you with a detailed SWOT analysis as a basis for decision making, which includes an initial clarification of legal and tax issues. This project phase concludes with the decision for a prefered succession option that will be primarily pursued.
In a next step, you will receive a detailed concept. This includes an elaboration of the target scenario, a financing concept, along with a determination of the expected change impact for the organisation.
Coordinated communication is of crucial importance in the implementation phase. We moderate the discussions with key stakeholders and – if you wish – will take over the negotiations with potential buyers. After the purchase has been concluded, we provide professional change management focussed on motivating the staff to adopt to requested changes in the critical phase of the succession. The buyer will be supported by a sound business plan for the first 3 years.
