Measurable return on partnership.
Potential vs risk
Quick decisions, operations under enormous time pressure, maximum flexibility and a weighing up of potential and risk on the basis of reliable data and proven expertise.
Few sectors are as driven by efficiency, numbers and success as private equity. The demands of private equity are correspondingly high when it comes to selecting advisory firms and services.
Only those who demonstrably deliver top level results in the form of validated figures and quantifiable added value are considered. Especially when it comes to the strategic development of a company’s own turnaround or value enhancement concepts. Many private equity investors know and appreciate Struktur Management Partner as an author of reliable restructuring reports. However, well-founded analyses and realistic assessment of feasible solutions paired with the necessary industry knowledge are just one aspect.
Advancing together – digital engineering
The German private equity landscape has been experiencing strong growth for decades, and is at the same time subject to great change. There are few attractive investment opportunities, and yet they stand against growing financial resources. The private equity companies are strongly positioned with regard to their core competences: financial engineering, operational engineering and strategic engineering.
Through the pandemic, new aspects are now coming to the fore. Digital transformation is gaining in importance – particularly for financial investors. With our value-based approach and digital engineering, we can identify the digital potential of your target in the course of the digital due diligence assessment before the acquisition, and derive value-oriented digital strategies from that for after the acquisition.
Digital due diligence:
Putting targets through their digital paces – what digital business model risks, value enhancement potentials, strengths and weaknesses does the company have when we compare its current internal situation with external market and technological developments?
Digital value enhancement programmes:
Effectively leveraging digitalisation potential with a concrete digital strategy and roadmap – what opportunities do process automation, marketing and sales digitalisation and digital services and business models offer to improve efficiency, reduce internal complexity, and help the company stand out from the competition and gain market share?
Acquiring critical digital capabilities – how can targeted M&A measures enhance a portfolio company's equity story, and fill important gaps in its digital organisation?
