Family-owned businesses (SME/PME)

Shareholder value enhancement

  • Corporate strategy: we act as an independent sounding board helping you to reflect on your overall market positioning and potential.
  • Key performance indicators: we will define key indicators (financial and operational) allowing you to keep track of the most important variables which drive the profitability of your business, as well as implement pragmatic action plans to realise value.
  • Financial indebtedness: in many cases, owners of family-owned businesses are asked to provide personal guarantees to lending banks. We can help you to reduce such personal guarantees and to improve the conditions on financial debt.

Company transmission

  • Valuation: you may be surprised to learn how much your company is worth. We will apply the standard industry models used by those parties potentially expressing an interest in your business.
  • Transmission preparation: we can help you to prepare your company for transmission either to a third party such as a strategic buyer or a private equity house (because we know what such buyers expect, like and dislike) or your family successors.
  • Process: we will structure and implement the company transmission process, in collaboration with our tax specialists.
