Successfully shaping corporate transactions

Corporate Finance/M&A

Strategic acquisitions or separation from the family-owned company – special situations that are not everyday business for family entrepreneurs. You can rely on our experience. With the necessary strategic foresight, the experience built up from over 50 completed transactions and the expertise in handling difficult situations, Wintergerst is a competent partner to have at your side during the sale of your company or when making a planned acquisition. Wintergerst takes responsibility for steering the entire transaction process.

Buy-side and sell-side mergers & acquisitions

WINTERGERST is your competent M&A advisor for corporate transactions – both sell-side, as part of a succession plan, for example, or the sale of a distinct operation (carve-outs), but also on the buy-side when it comes to acquisitions. Regardless of whether you are searching for international investors (sell-side) or looking for potential acquisitions (buy-side) – our membership in international networks such as the International Corporate Finance Group (ICFG) provides us with strong partners in all relevant markets that also allow us to handle international M&A transactions.

Succession and future planning

WINTERGERST acts as a confidential sparring partner when it comes to designing and implementing your plans for the future. Our focus is on finding the best possible future solution for you, your family, and your company. We provide you with a full suite of support services related to structuring, procuring capital and coordinating the strategic, tax and company-law issues associated with the (partial) succession of your company to the next generation and also provide these services to internal and external management.Business valuations are of crucial importance and not just in the context of strategic acquisitions and divestments. The question of the value of their own company also arises for entrepreneurs when it comes to company succession, the entry and exit of shareholders or financing. By offering professional valuations based on generally accepted valuation methods, WINTERGERST helps you achieve the optimal value for your endeavor by avoiding any missteps in your assessments.

Due Diligence

When it comes to corporate transactions, WINTERGERST secures your success and creates transparency by conducting the requisite due diligence with a special orientation towards implementation. Our offer ranges from the analysis of financial risks and planning scenarios within the framework of financial due diligence to a comprehensive analysis of the company and the market as part of operational or commercial due diligence.
