How We work

Sale of a company

We provide comprehensive sales services, from preparing the entity for a strategic or financial investor, identifying an investor and making the first contact, through the stages of negotiations, and up to assisting with the integration into the investor’s organizational structures. We render these services primarily to Czech and Slovak companies’ shareholders who are looking to capitalize on the efforts that they have taken in building up the company by selling their shares in the company. We will broker not only the sale of a whole company, but also its parts – divisions and other organizational units. The project will be made to measure for the client, taking into account the situation, as well as individual needs and preferences.
Sale of a company - How it works

Risk identification
Together with the owners, we identify any potential risks that may limit the likelihood of the successful completion of the transaction, as well as risks that may have a negative impact on the price of the transaction, or its structure. At the same time, we work on minimizing or completely eliminating the risks.

Information documentation and contacting investors
We prepare documentation for approaching the investors. We make a list of potential buyers and check their interest in the acquisition. As a rule, we contact directly the owners or the managers responsible for mergers, acquisitions or for the expansion of a potential buyer.

Negotiations with investors
We negotiate with the investors to ensure the highest possible price of the transaction and to minimize any risks that the transaction may entail.

Transaction documentation
We work with lawyers in the preparation and negotiation of the entire contractual documentation.

Post-transaction processes
Once the transaction is completed, we assist the client with the integration of the entity into the structures of the investor and with introducing new processes that the investor uses in practice.

Acquisition of a company

We provide comprehensive acquisition services, from identifying a suitable acquisition target, through contacting its shareholders, negotiating, ensuring financing, to assisting with the integration into the client’s organizational structures. We render these services primarily to Czech and Slovak companies that are looking to expand by means of acquisition of its competitors or companies dealing in any related business. We also provide these services to international entities that wish to enter the Czech or Slovak markets or strengthen their position by acquiring a local company.
