We invest in customer relationships and seek to understand your strategic context.

Each of Proventis Partners’ M&A-projects is different. And each of them requires tailor-made planning. We distinguish ourselves by investing more time and ideas in customer relationships than others. We want to understand exactly why an acquisition or selling the company makes sense and further understand the optimal timing. This approach is entirely different from making a quick deal. Others focus on pushing the M&A-project through the pipeline with a focus on processes and the mechanic of the deal. From our point of view, an M&A-mandate is part of a solution to a problem or the contribution to a strategy; embedded in the context of the company, the family or the industry. As soon as we determined the strategic context, we are better positioned to successfully finalize and M&A-transaction.

The German-speaking region is our home - we are conntected with the world.

It is not a disadvantage to be well established and connected within a region. We have a broad network of companies, private equity firms and other market participants and we know always what is currently happening. Today, international connectivity is crucial. A large portion of company acquisitions and sales are cross border and cannot be supported by local M&A advisors. Proventis Partners creates these dimensions through strong ties to partner companies in selected industrial countries and our membership in the Mergers Alliance. Our expertise and personal connections in the industrial sectors additionally give us access to all the significant industrial markets worldwide. The majority of our M&A-transactions has international aspects.

Our M&A-services

Each of Proventis Partners’ M&A-projects is different. And each of them requires a tailor-made approach and perfect results. But one topic unites each of our more than 200 mid-cap M&A-transactions since 2001: the sustainable success for our customers. Our track record is something we can be proud of: the transaction volume meanwhile adds up to more than 4 billion Euros.

Precision and professionalism is needed when it comes to divesting companies or parts of companies. The interests of many parties must to be taken into account: those of investors, customers, employees, suppliers and the public.

When buying a company, each step can be decisive: from identifying and approaching potential targets to embedding the target into a growth strategy, as well as from a comprehensive due diligence to contract negotiations and a successful integration.

Proventis Partners offers you an integrated and cooperative approach: we accompany you along the entire process and each of its parts. We conduct the different sub-steps of the process, from the potential analysis to its realization to a (potential) transaction.

Sooner or later each entrepreneur is confronted with the question of succession. He can pass on the responsibility to the next generation, to an internal or external manager via an MBI/MBO or sell his legacy to a strategic or financial investor.

Proventis Partners simultaneously offers M&A- and Corporate Finance expertise. And that is exactly the combination that is needed for MBOs and MBIs, since managers thereby not only acquire their own or another company.

When leading a company, you are always searching for growth and expansion opportunities. A possiblity is for instance to enter new markets or to expand marketing, the distribution network or production or to invest into new technologies.

The objective of an independent valuation is to determine an anchor for the realistic economic value of a company, a division or a strategic project.

Numerous M&A-transactions fail due to insufficient or wrongly executed integration. Proventis Partners’ experts know the approaches of post merger integration by heart and know how to implement synergies and how to control the execution.
