Fit for Sale

Sustainably Increase Value

Early and thorough planning of a succession process is critical to ensuring sustainable increases in the business’ value.

The Mergers & Acquisitions process is far more comprehensive than just a financial evaluation. On the sell-side, adequate preparation for the transaction is critical to ensuring as high a valuation as possible is achieved.

The Stettler Partners’ process is as follows:

  • Analysis of the current situation
  • Development or evaluation and refinement of the succession and sale strategies.
  • Selection of suitable strategic options in the form of strategic partners for the succession solution, as well as the sale itself.
  • Definition and prioritisation of operational measures to increase the business valuation
  • Development or support in developing a company-wide plan based on the operational measures identified
  • Re-orientation of the organisation on the implementation of value-adding measures as a basis for implementing the future strategy.
  • Professional mentoring of the management team in effectively implementing the measures
  • Execution of the transformation process

From the value-adding preparatory work to the actual financial transaction, the priority is to develop sustainable strategies and create efficient organisations with highly motivated management teams and winning corporate cultures. StettlerPartners integrates economic, technical and intercultural awareness into the transformation process, leading to the overall success of your company. The sustainable, value-increasing preparatory work is an important prerequisite to realising a high business valuation.
