KORN CONSULT GROUP starts the support of M&A projects
Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) is a generic name for most of the known types of transactions in the corporate division, such as mergers, corporate acquisitions, operational transitions, leveraged buyouts, outsourcing and insourcing, spin-offs, equity carve-out or cooperation.
Primarily concerned with this industry are service providers such as lawyers, tax accountants, auditors or investment bankers.
For exchange and further education through and with a designated expert, Mr. Christian Gerber, - from the auditing company I-ADVISE AG in Dusseldorf and Frankfurt am Main - was invited by KORN CONSULT at the headquarters in Alzenau.
Christian Gerber is an Auditor and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
His current focus is on supporting M&A transactions and associated company valuations for Managing Directors, shareholders and investors of mainly medium-sized companies. In addition, he is a lecturer at the University of Augsburg and also lecturer of the JurGrad at the University of Münster, thus keeping pace with the times.
The participants were given through Mr. Gerber an insight into processes, correlated subject-specific terms, and thus a basic knowledge on the topic of M&A. The subsequent detailed exchange, which also allowed some deepening in reference cases from both sides, quickly showed possible intersections.
Especially in the "due diligence phase", there are many starting points for cooperation and support with the financial and legal experts involved in their necessary analyzes after the event. This generally involves the risk assessment of these transactions in various areas, such as strategy & market (position of parties), Human Resources, organization of companies, production/technology (equipment, buildings, etc.) and with growing interest also in environmental issues.
The KORN CONSULT GROUP has exactly these skills to assess the risks with its worldwide network of consultants.
If you are looking for support in planning and implementation of such a transaction in the field of M&A, we are always at your disposal with our team of consultants and M&A partners.
