In addition to supporting the operational business, we accompany the sales process in the case of transferred reorganisations (distressed M&A)


The M&A process in a company crisis involves special challenges. Potential investors must be approached within a short period of time and shown individually why the company in crisis offers strategic added value for the investor. The necessary individualised sales documents have to be prepared in an often difficult data situation. The entire process must be structured and transparent to the highest degree for all parties involved. The different interests of the stakeholders must be taken into account.

F&P prepares this process and ensures its implementation with its cooperation partners Angermann Consult.
