Mergers & Acquisitions Consulting
Overcome the obstacles in your way
Our market is consolidating and we want to strategically buy smaller businesses.
We’re expecting further growth, but not just organic growth, by acquiring other companies.
A financial crisis has badly hit our market segment and we want to buy businesses that need financing and quality products.
Draw inspiration from our projects
Market screening of potential companies for M&A in the food sector
In 2020 and 2021 we supported a German business in the food sector with a screening project for potential strategic partners or companies that could be acquired. We implemented market screening according to custom criteria throughout the entire DACH market. We also initiated talks and negotiations for strategic partners and companies potentially willing to sell.

Experts at Konsultori
Startup access to ecosystems and SME service providers
For years we have been training accelerators, local agencies, universities and research institutes throughout the DACH region and Eastern Europe. We have a strong network of technology scouts. We also work closely with banks and taxation solicitors for medium-sized companies.
We specialise in business valuations for early-stage startups. At this stage, the future growth of your business is still highly uncertain, meaning special methods for valuation must be applied. Late-stage businesses use the DCF method as standard, combined with a multiples approach. Sometimes, an asset valuation is also necessary.
In the creative industries and technology sector especially (platform model, SaaS model, corporate sales), we have several years of experience and provide templates for financial planning which are challenged using benchmarks.
