An acquisition can take place in the short term – symbolically in the form of a quick handover of keys – or in the longer term. In the latter case in particular, we focus on a trusting relationship that lays the groundwork for the decisions to be made by the entrepreneur. Within the framework of this succession solution, MIB acquires up to 100 percent of the shares in the company.
The assessment of the company – the so-called due diligence – usually includes the economic, legal, tax, organisational and technical issues, an analysis of the market and competitive environment and, if necessary, an environmental assessment. These elements are carried out swiftly by our own staff as well as by external specialists and with the necessary discretion. Following an acquisition of a company, the previous owner usually continues to act as managing director for a mutually agreed period of time.
