Strategy & Value Creation Advisory

Our advisory services in Strategy & Value Creation focus on four areas of activity:

  1. Deal Execution: Preparation and support of the purchase or sale of a company, e.g. through the preparation of commercial due diligences and value creation plans. Focused advice on further capital measures on the equity or debt side. Support in positioning and differentiation in competitive processes.
  2. Post-Closing: Assistance during the critical post-closing phase in the form of onboarding, 100-day or post-merger-integration programs.
  3. Value Creation: Initiation and support of value creation or operational improvement projects, not only utilizing the opportunities provided by growth phases but also optimizing the cost base and managing phases of consolidation.
  4. Exit Readiness: Optimisation of both market readiness and exit proceeds by means of an extended business plan based on clearly defined value creation measures, preparation of all sales documentation and data room, vendor due diligence and coaching of management throughout the exit process.

Our formal role in such engagements will usually be one of an experienced advisor or interim manager. In certain cases, we will also assume the role of a member of the supervisory or advisory board.

Our advisory teams typically work on-site with and for our clients, or out of our offices in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and London.
