Selling a company is a challenging undertaking that begins long before a transaction process has been initiated. We recognized the complexity in terms of skills, experience, knowledge, contact networks and intelligence required to make the most of the value potential in companies that are being sold.
By identifying the key processes and necessary resources for handling the entirety and bringing them together in a solid structure, we realized that we could support investors and entrepreneurs very tangibly in this effort. Therefore we formed a close strategic partnership giving us the ability to custom-
ize teams with senior individuals, providing required industrial and functional knowledge and experience to ensure best practice. Continue
... Our partners include management consulting firm BearingPoint, the North American investment bank Headwaters MB, the premier business law firm in Sweden, MannheimerSwartling, and the leading tax and audit firm PwC. With our partner setup, we have a solid reference and knowledge base and cover all functional and industry aspects of a value growth endeavor as well as the complete exit process.
listérus & partners Capital Advisors was founded as a spin-off from ten years of providing international business development services under the brand listérus & partners Corporate Advisors. The combi-
nation of a serial entrepreneur with industrial back-
ground and rich experience from financial transac-
tions and an experienced industry executive with comprehensive management consultancy experience,
proved to be a fruitful base when Christian Listérus and Björn Serving started operations in 2010.
We are pragmatic with a delivery and result-orientated "get it done" attitude and believe in shared risks and rewards.
We work with the entire process from conducting a portfolio assessment to the actual transformation of a specific portfolio company.
Our Value Growth process provides a systematic approach and the necessary tools to create aggressive qualitative values. By ensuring that created values are matching the market demand, our process contributes to a successful and smooth exit. See our exit process
All our engagements lead to a capitalization of enterprise values. The typical situation is when a portfolio company is out for sale. We manage exits in a structured M&A process, divided into two main parts; deal assessment and deal execution. During the deal assessment part, the focus is set on developing an optimal market positioning and identification of the Buyer universe, including a first reach-out to selected accounts. During the execution part, a short-list of potential buyers is being drafted, interest in the opportunity is being created, deepened and driven to a firm intent to purchase. Then, we facilitate a systematic due diligence process and, in parallel, conduct negotiations, structure the deal and close the transaction.
