Sale of a language school to a strong growth partner
The company to be sold is an educational institution (language school) from northern Germany with approx. 3 million annual sales and approximately 40 employees at the time of sale.
With the takeover of the mandate, the main objective of the company exchange Grönig & Kollegen AG was to identify and approach strategic investors, and in addition, the examination and implementation of re-participation models for the seller as well as the examination and implementation of legal and tax matters throughout the sales process.
The company exchange's consultants defined a negotiation strategy, and accompanied the sales process in all its details with extensive and professional advice.
It should be particularly emphasised that the support from the company exchange enabled the originally planned sales price to be increased by around 30%.
The company's buyer was able to benefit from synergies and growth as well as increased sales.
As for the seller, his goals were fulfilled: A successful company handover took place with a high sales price. By working as managing director, the seller was able to continue to contribute in order to open up further markets. Furthermore, the owner has a stake in the buyer's investment company and now also participates in the further growth of the entire group of companies.
All in all, this was a successful and competent performance by the Grönig & Kollegen AG company exchange, with a great result for the seller and high synergy potential for the buyer, through the integration of the company into the existing group of companies.
Both parties are very happy with the transaction.
