Valuation of SMEs
Before purchasing a SME, a valuation should be carried out according to generally accepted and customary market principles and procedures. As certified and experienced company valuation analysts, we create transparency for you regarding the value - whether as an indication or by means of an expert opinion in accordance with IdW standards (i.e. standards of the German Institute of Auditors). As your direct link to companies in Germany, we also help you understand regional markets, standards and customs.
State aid for investments, ongoing costs
We have many years of experience in the acquisition of subsidies, be it for investments, ongoing costs and/or for R&D-projects. When buying a company in Germany, we will check how and if you can support your investment with subsidies from European, federal, state or municipal level. If subsidies for your project are possible, we help you through the application process from the first concept via all necessary formalities and including communication with funding authorities.
Support in Post Merger
The individual layout of corporate transactions varies widely: In SME-companies, the seller usually commits himself to a transition phase with an orderly handover to the buyer, sometimes personally passing on the customers, sometimes training the new Managing Director provided by the buyer. Sometimes a buyer wishes the now old entrepreneur to take over an advisory function in the company. If you do not have a foothold in Germany yet, assistance in looking for new management may be sought.
So whatever the individual layout of your transaction, we offer you comprehensive advice for this important PMI-phase after the purchase.
Dr. Christian Heimann
Based on a bank apprenticeship and a business degree with specialization in investment and financing, I worked for 23 years in responsible positions in the areas of M&A (national/international), corporate finance, commercial management and commercial interim management. This included 15 years as managing director of two investment companies in Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.
There I was responsible for almost 100 transactions and financings involving small and medium-sized companies. In addition I held various advisory and supervisory board mandates. In recent years, I received comprehensive training on all issues concerning M&A-transactions. In addition, I am a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) working on the basis of IdW, EACVA and NACVA-standards.
In 2014 I started CHBBG Dr. Heimann Beteiligungs- und Beratungsges. mbH, my own independent management consultancy.
