Trade Sale (Sell-Side M&A Advisory)

Our clients' companies are often the work of a lifetime. Therefore, accurate preparation - taking serious account of our clients' business and personal targets - and professional management of the sales process are crucial for successful trade sales. We will advise you so as to realise an optimal result from the sale of your company. We often advise our clients for a significant time prior to the initiation of the transaction process in order to define and implement strategies to enhance the shareholder value in the face of a planned Trade Sale.

Typical steps in our sell-side M&A mandates are:

  • Assessment and analysis of the business plan or compiling a Business plan including financial modelling
  • Company valuation
  • Detailed analysis of the transaction targets of our clients
  • Structuring of the transaction
  • Preparation of a professional, convincing Information-Memorandum
  • Rigorous analysis of potential buyers
  • Definition of Long List of potential strategic and - if applicable - financial buyers
  • Coordination, preparation and moderation of management meetings
  • Preparation and support in the Due Diligence (incl. Data room)
  • Coordination of all other parties involved in the process
  • Conduct of negotiations
  • Process management up to the Closing of the transaction
