LONG-TERM. FUTURE-ORIENTED. PARTNERSHIP.
THE INVESTMENT CRITERIA
We have clear ideas as to which companies are eligible for a place under the umbrella of PMB. Our investment criteria provide orientation – to us as well as interested sellers.
Your company’s business focus and area of activity is Europe
Companies that are typically interesting to us have a turnover between EUR 10 and 80 million
We are looking for companies that are profitable and have stable earnings
We attach great importance to excellent management, which also provides the opportunity to participate in the company
SUCCESSION SOLUTIONS FOR SMEs
Our special focus is on succession solutions for SMEs and their families
If the profile fits, we are also open to the removal of parts by spin-off or carve-out
Attractive growth or consolidation potentials in the company’s industry
Transparent and controllable risk profile in terms of finance, law and technology
Opportunities for buy-and-build concepts to expand the market position in the respective sector
Additional potential for organic growth through innovation and digitisation
Clear. Transparent. Fair.
THE INVESTMENT PROCESS
Clarity and a high degree of transparency are of particular importance to us in the investment process. This is the only way to build trust on both sides early on – and thus the basis for a successful partnership.
Getting to know each other
On-site visit to get to know the business, management and employees
Getting an insight
Handover of the annual accounts for the last 3 years and the planning for the current financial year
We create a compact, easy-to-understand and comprehensible indicative offer on this basis
The confirmation of the indicative offer by the seller is followed by the start of due diligence, which PID or POSSEHL usually undertakes through their own management
After due diligence has been carried out, the seller receives the binding offer
If the binding offer is approved, the sale is concluded with the closing
Convincing. Clear. Diverse.
Benefits for sellers
Full transparency across the process at all times.
Intensive familiarisation process and close exchange with the PID management team.
Fair and attractive valuation of your company – from the beginning.
Low involvement of external consultants and thus minimum binding of resources on the seller’s side.
100% equity financing of the transaction – no leverage and thus no reduction of the internal financing power.
Debt relief for the company by integrating the company into the POSSEHL cash pool.
Absolute confidentiality at all stages of the process.
