More information about Business Succession
In around 380,000 German companies, the business will be handed over for age reasons in the next five years.
According to research conducted by the Institute for SME Research, about 70% of these companies have no strategy for the regulation of succession.
Often financing problems are the reason for difficulties in the generation change or in the search for a successor.
Regardless of whether it is a corporate succession through the company’s own management management buy-out, an external management management buy-in or another successor solution, financing the purchase price for the buyer or successor is usually the highest hurdle ,
It is still comparatively rare to use external equity capital for succession arrangements.
Both the fear of having to hand over decision-making and control rights as well as possible conditional disadvantages of equity capital compared to loan offers make many entrepreneurs hesitate.
These fears are often unfounded. Tailored solutions are possible via individual financing concepts.
With mezzanine financial instruments, the decision-making power remains with the entrepreneur.
Even the conditions of venture capital, which are often unfavorable at first sight, lose their fright on closer inspection. Equity capital increases the equity ratio. The better equity ratio increases the company’s resilience and, in most cases, improves its rating, which in turn opens up scope for reducing borrowing costs.
We design tailor-made succession and financing concepts for succession planning and purchase price financing.
