According to the calculations of the Institut für Mittelstandsforschung (Institute for SME Research) in Bonn, around 30,000 mid-sized, family-run companies each year will undergo a change in management or ownership in the years ahead. More than half (53%) of owners transfer their company to another family member (internal solution). A further 29% of transfers are made to external executives (MBI) or other investors outside of the family (external solution). Around 18%of owners transfer their company to the existing management (MBO).
It is therefore particulary important. The key thing here is to therefore address the central issues of strategy, management and financing at an early stage in the succession process, as a decision must be made regarding which succession plan is best for the company and family in the individual case in question. This requires a high level of competence and an abundance of experience, but also appropriate “networks” within the M&A transaction environment, which, in our opinion, should only be involved in the transaction process as external parties if the company lacks its own internal specialist resources.
