Typical star­ting point of client

  • According to KfW ca. 580,000 SMEs are looking for a successor until 2017
  • These compa­nies are usually owner-managed and there­fore depend highly on the know­ledge and the contacts of the proprietor
  • The plan­ning of a corpo­rate succes­sion has not yet been approa­ched from a stra­tegic perspec­tive because there is no obvious successor but an emotional attach­ment to the enter­prise. As a result not only the closing of the company is immi­nent but also
    a loss of assets for the owner

Inno­va­tive approach

  • Besides the will the corpo­rate succes­sion is one of the biggest obsta­cles on the way into reti­re­ment. The company gets support in making deci­sions by means of a clear process:
    • Analy­sing the goals and needs of the owner for the successor phase and the reti­re­ment
    • Detailed stock­ta­king of the company: contract inspec­tion, product and customer analyses
    • Buil­ding on this a stra­tegy for a transfer of know­ledge and the search for a successor will be deve­loped: Processes and reporting struc­tures will be esta­blished accord­ingly, there will be a search for quali­fied staff and legal struc­tures will
      be adju­sted
    • Plan­ning of the necessary steps and coor­di­na­tion with other experts like the tax accoun­tant of the company. Deve­lop­ment of a commu­ni­ca­tion stra­tegy for the private and the opera­tional sphere
    • Opti­mi­sa­tion of the valua­tion of the company via stra­tegic changes on the product and finan­cial side if necessary

Typical effect/result

  • Secu­ring of the corpo­rate succes­sion with a new proprietor or a new manage­ment
  • Higher reve­nues from selling the company
  • The plan­ning of corpo­rate succes­sion ensures ease on the part of the owner as well as clarity for the company and it allows for a contented tran­si­tion into reti­re­ment
