Finding an investor for companies in a crisis poses a particular challenge as time is of the premium. The company’s situation is unclear. Numerous stakeholders and their divergent interests must be taken into account. This calls for a structured and transparent approach closely tailored to the specific requirements of the case.
Backed by our many years of experience in handling crisis situations and the resultant uncertainty, we are able to identify the individual success factors. Our references show that we are able to successfully complete investor processes in a restructuring scenario and within the scope of creditor-protection, self-management and conventional insolvency proceedings.
We see to the professional organization of the entire investor process. We are able to adjust the specific sequence and road map in the light of the individual requirements and potential of the situation in question. This is done in close consultation with the company, the self-management officers, the insolvency administrator or the finance partners.
With our many years of experience in analyzing distressed companies, we are able to assess business models and identify value drivers. This allows us to pinpoint investors’ main interests, to supply them with the specific information they require and to achieve optimum results from negotiations - all with the goal of selling the company or parts of it successfully. Ultimately, everyone benefits from this: investors and management find a way out of the crisis, employees are assured of favorable prospects for the future and creditors’ claims can be satisfied to a large extent.
Robust information must be provided so that investors can swiftly appraise the company that is up for sale. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the seller’s sensitive information is duly protected.
We know what information is required by potential investors and can assist the sellers in compiling and preparing informative documentation. If necessary, we will help in developing viable plans for the future and in calculating plausible forecasts.
The specially prepared documents are made available to potential investors in a virtual data room, allowing them to peruse the information regardless of their location. The access rights for users can be duly managed.
