Mergers & Acquisitions
Buying or selling a business implies a significant decision with far-reaching consequences for every party involved. The buyer is faced with the responsibility for the newly bought company; for the seller it often means to hand over one’s lifetime work.
Apart from numerous transactions for our clients, Advicum partners also have acquired or sold their own businesses and therefore are familiar with technical, legal and emotional issues involved in such a process. Therefore, we can offer top-level support and advice throughout these processes, from deal preparation to necessary activities after takeover.
In addition, we are in a position to offer any kind of consulting and/or management services that go beyond the pure M&A deal. It is our goal to always act for you as if it were our own business.
Debt & Equity Financing
Adequate debt financing opens up a variety of opportunities for business owners. Before considering debt financing, it is substantial to conduct a structured analysis of the current situation of a company in order to check all the risks involved. Based on this analysis, we provide you with a number of different financing solutions, all of them assessed and adjusted to your strategic planning.
Risk-adequate equity financing and its structuring, together with stable debt financing, form a central element of entrepreneurial activity. From the analysis of the financing requirements derived from the overall risk scope, to comprehensive company valuations in accordance with all standard procedures today, to the search for a suitable financing partner, we are a reliable advisor who always takes the entrepreneurial perspective. Advicum always offers equity financing services at investment bank level in the interest of your company and stands out clearly from many other financing providers.
Business assessment involves the evaluation of the value of entire companies or of interests in companies. Valuation methods and their relevance vary depending on the environment and transaction structure.
That is why Advicum takes an individual approach to projects and provides tailor-made solutions. In doing so, a company valuation is created which, based on various relevant methods, results in a band model of a possible sales price and takes into account the essential value drivers of the business model.
