Sell-Side M&A

The sale of a company or individual parts of a business is caused by various reasons. Often the sale of a business is motivated by personal, strategic or financial reasons. Due to the different reasons, different aims arise for the sale:

  • Consideration of family aspects
  • Personal life planning
  • High purchase price
  • Ensuring job security for the employees
  • Continue of the business
  • Maintaining company identity
  • Asset protection and optimized tax position
