An internationally established company in the automotive supply industry was faced with the challenge of restoring its competitiveness in a difficult market environment. The use of an interim CRO and the implementation of a comprehensive restructuring and realignment project enabled significant improvements to be achieved and the company to be put back on “new feet”.
Corporate & Business Development
An online digital marketing agency was acquired by a private equity firm. The private equity house invests in successful, owner-managed companies and supports them locally in their future-oriented development. The company had to be brought up to the level of a stock corporation in the financial area and to the requirements of the private equity company, virtually from here to now!
The project focused on the acquisition of an international group of companies/food discounters with stores in Spain, Portugal, Brazil and Argentina from a London-based investment firm. The deal also includes the network of former Schlecker stores in Spain and Portugal. The business was making losses and is not properly strategically positioned. The order included a refurbishment and sale of the business.
Medical technology / pharmaceutical industry
International group of companies
The company’s DACH organization showed declining sales and revenue figures, and EBIT was clearly negative. A clear sales strategy was not in place, and internal cooperation with the product development, quality assurance and production departments was clearly strained.
