Our client was the German subsidiary of an international IT consulting service provider with about 350 employees in Germany. With a total of 5 locations, the company worked primarily for enterprise clients and for listed corporations throughout Germany.
The portfolio was to be further developed through strategic acquisitions or majority shareholdings. The primary objective was to acquire early-stage companies that would be strengthened by the client’s strong sales force and shared service center and thus enable dynamic growth.
Among other transactions, a majority of shares in a specialist for mobile solutions and application development was acquired. Mutual options were agreed with the co-entrepreneur and the company branding was retained. With the new shareholder structure, the acquired company tripled its turnover and number of employees within 2 years while maintaining high profitability.
Thanks to EUROCON’s perfect negotiation skills and experience we were able to master all pitfalls of the M&A process.G.A., former Managing Director
