Our services

Everyone can do it when the road is paved.
We are the right ones when it gets winding and challenging.

Performance Management

Companies are confronted with new competitors, volatile supply and demand markets and, as a result, increasing downward pressure on profits.

Those who wish to be successfully and sustainably competitive must organise their processes to the utmost power and efficiency. Positive identification of efficiency and improvement potentials, however, proves to be difficult for most managers due to constant contention with daily business, and change management projects often get left behind.

Business Development

When markets are saturated, production life cycles are growing ever shorter, and new key markets and alternative sales channels are available, the added value a company can offer its customers must be continually scrutinised. Especially in difficult economic times – in keeping with the basic rule: “attack is the best defense” – emphasis is increasingly put on sales to make the most out of market potential.

Corporate Finance

Requirements on the right financing structure companies have changed decisively in the last years due to turbulent developments in capital markets and in the real economy. Companies are confronted with credit line cuts, unexpectedly difficult financing negotiations and new requirements from their own banks. Alternative forms of financing – e.g. mezzanine capital or corporate bonds – can be included in financing along with classic bank financing.

M&A Advisory

Mergers & Acquisitions continue to grow in importance in medium-sized business: It is more and more common for company successors to come from outside the family, quick developmental changes are difficult to realize through organic growth, focusing on core business makes it necessary to outsource or give up business activities. For most companies, the purchase or sale of a company unit is a totally new challenge, the completion of which places great demands on the entire organisation.
