In the event of economic difficulties, the sale of a company or individual parts of a company can drastically improve the liquidity situation and thus avert insolvency. Company transactions in exceptional situations that have arisen for economic or financial reasons require a particularly high degree of foresight, prudence, consistency and, above all, speed.
When economic or financial reasons lead to decisions to sell or buy, the most important factor is time. Companies on both the seller and buyer side are forced to act quickly, which can often lead to sales below value and purchases without clear information. Experienced M&A advisors with strong networks and a deep understanding of the different industry sectors can fully support clients in their transactions.
The aim of distressed M&A transactions is the continued operation of financially or economically distressed companies or parts of companies with as few further losses as possible. Despite the ailing overall situation, the buyer side usually focuses on takeover targets with promising portfolios, technologies and/or resources.
ensign advisory supports both the buyer and the seller in distressed M&A transactions with extensive M&A expertise and a distinctive network. We advise on the timely transfer of organizations or parts of organizations and involve all relevant parties, such as insolvency administrators, shareholders, and creditors, in order to find the best possible and, above all, tailor-made solution. We support our clients with financial and liquidity planning, analyze existing potential and help to implement the strict timetable with the aim of continuing the business.
In terms of the buyer side, the ensign network enables optimal conditions for the search for potential takeover targets as well as the establishment of contacts. At the same time, clients such as companies, private equity houses or family offices are accompanied in the best possible way through all process steps such as due diligence, negotiations, and the closing of the deal.
ensign advisory initiates the necessary operational support at high speed to be able to optimally accompany a transaction/restructuring. In doing so, we support clients on both the buyer and seller side with extensive M&A experience and a network built up over the years, which makes both the search for acquisition targets and potential investors very efficient and can secure the continuity of operations.
