Vis-à-vis the restrictive credit policies of German banks, the relatively low equity ratios, and the collapse of the market for certified mezzanine, particularly small and medium-sized companies face considerable challenges when structuring their liabilities. Strategic realignment, forcing a defined growth strategy and restructuring often demand the allocation of fresh capital. Equity capital. Financial investors are often the source of finance of choice.
BGP helps clients find the "right" investor, distinguishing between the following situations:
Succession. BGP, in collaboration with a private equity investor selected by the client, will prepare a management buy-out (MBO) or help search for an external successor or a management buy-in (MBI) candidate.
Growth story. Companies that have successfully managed a turnaround with our assistance, have developed a feasible restructuring plan and/or are initiating a strategic realignment and setting out towards profitable growth, can take advantage of our network of relationships with over one hundred private equity investors.
Buy and build strategy. Certain sectors that BGP is active in are characterized by an intense pressure to consolidate. We help clients who would like to join up with other companies to look for a private equity investor specializing in such complex transactions. If desired, we can also assist the mergers of the respective companies.
Turnaround. BGP knows the small number of serious, professional
financial investors who will invest in companies that are in critical
situations or in crisis and who rather pursue long-term perspectives.
