Of our currently more than 50 active clients, an increasing number of prospective buyers have come forward who would like to continue acquiring companies despite the crisis triggered by Corona. In addition to the typical succession problems, the competitive situation, industry concentration, product innovations or necessary high investments can also trigger sales considerations.
There is great interest in established companies with a proven business model. The operating result should be between EUR 1 million and EUR 10 million. A crisis-related decline in earnings is accepted if the company's business model is sustainable.
Other investors are also interested in minority holdings for a limited period of time when family companies need to be temporarily strengthened.
For entrepreneurial families, the (temporary) inclusion of (minority) shareholders in the circle of owners can make sense despite the corona crisis. These shareholders usually bring in not only capital but also network and know-how, and can thus strengthen companies not only in terms of capital.
Securing the future of companies can also succeed in times of crisis!
