The focus of our consultancy is the provision of equity capital primarily for growth and expansion financing of established medium-sized companies and young companies in their foundation, market entry or market penetration phase by the respective suitable investors. In one-off cases, we can assist with capital solutions in restructuring situations and MBO / MBIs and other shareholder change situations. Our privileged access in particular to other Family Offices and wealthy private individuals allows a successful connection of investors and capital-seeking companies.
Furthermore, we help our clients reach a balanced liability side of their balance sheets, with the aim of comfortable capitalization and a minimization of capital cost. To this end we develop individually tailored financing strategies and structures. This also applies to growth and acquisition financing, refinancing, debt restructuring and conversion of existing forms of financing (e.g. covenants negotiation assistance, debt to equity swaps, etc.). We also offer access to both traditional financial instruments such as bank loans and syndicated loans as well as mezzanine solutions and alternative forms of financing (SME bonds, factoring, contract financing, leasing, etc.), and work in this regard partly with renowned specialists.
We advise on purchase and sale of companies and company shares, succession management (management buy-out/management buy-in) and leveraged buyouts. We identify as needed suitable acquisition targets, buyers or investors and assist our clients as a competent partner during the structuring and implementation of the entire transaction process. We create all the documentation by conventional standards, approach prospective interested parties and lead the negotiations on behalf of the client or take coordinating control of the entire process up to closing and beyond.
In the area of business development, we help companies with our long-standing management experience and our insights into a variety of projects in strategic corporate development and implementation. In the process we use our network which we built up over years and which spreads over almost all sectors, functions and regions such as Europe, the Americas and Asia.
We undertake the management of individual portfolio companies or even entire portfolios for investment companies, private equity funds, family offices and investors from Germany and abroad. Our focus is on the realization of capital gains and the implementation of successful exits in the interests of our clients. In selected cases we also assume the function of a trustee.
With a competently staffed China Desk we further perform tasks in the field of relations between our European clients and Chinese companies and investors. For this purpose we also have an experienced Chinese partner with profound knowledge of German.
