- End-to-end solution for corporate development transactions through an active participation at each stage of the process: During the corporate strategy formulation by assessing its feasibility and alternatives, at the origination by identifying suitable prospects to be approached, and during the execution phase by ensuring efficient completion, allowing clients to focus on running their businesses. Our partnership with Comsco AG enables us to follow-up with our clients during post merger integration stages, offering management coaching.
- Excellent support for US and European multinationals for European acquisitions: Providing market segmentation and/or target screening and, in many cases, originating privately-negotiated acquisition opportunities through industry-specific insights and our network of relationships as well as a tactful and cultural sensitive approach.
- For private businesses with succession issues and divisions of larger groups to be divested, our US and European coverage allows maximizing the geographical reach of sell side assignments and ensures access to the most appropriate partners. We provide midsize businesses the technical, cultural and negotiation skills that are otherwise available only for larger transactions.
