Full sale or, preferably, a phased sale:
- Sell small majority stake
- Create organic growth together
- Exit: sell remaining shares after 2-4 years with the result usually being a considerably higher total sum than in the case of whole sale at once
After several successful acquisitions in the recent past, management has decided to investigate strategic collaborations or participations.
This involves a search for specialist companies that are open to join a larger group in order to make better use of each other's knowledge, expertise, network and facilities, and to be able to take up a stronger position in the consolidating market and provide a full range of services.
Experience shows that both companies benefit substantially from a cooperation. Especially in a phased sale, we see that a gradual transfer works well for both shareholder(s) and staff. Also, the total proceeds tend to be substantially higher than in a single-stage sale of the whole company.
