Germany - Focus on small and medium-sized companies and transactions

MAIDAN Capital Advisors is focusing on small and medium-sized transactions in Germany, covering sell-side as well as buy-side Mergers & Acquisition transactions, Capital Raising & Debt Advisory, Special Situations, Investment Portfolio Solutions and Defense preparation measures, domestically and cross-border. Our clients range from large international groups reorganizing smaller group companies to small and medium-sized companies on their national or international growth path or within their strategic reorganization.

Often larger companies abstain from starting Mergers & Acquisitions transactions with a low or very low transaction volume because the efforts and complexity are the same as for a larger transaction, but the impact on the group financials may be extremely low. MAIDAN Capital Advisors specializes in small and medium-sized transactions and therefore executes these transactions very efficiently at reasonable pricing levels.

In many cases our client is the founder of a small or medium-sized company. As in every transaction, financial aspects matter, but we also understand that soft factors need to be carefully considered.

We support management teams in structuring respective management buy-outs or management buy-ins, we develop the financing structure and search for national and international debt or equity providers.

MAIDAN Capital Advisors assists stock-listed medium-sized companies in identifying strategic or financial investors, willing to acquire a minority stake. We approach potential investors on a no-name basis, initiate confidential discussions, manage any due diligence process, develop the transaction structure together with legal and tax advisors, support in preparing Shareholders Meetings and execute the transaction until Closing.

MAIDAN Capital Advisors supports small and medium-sized companies in their search for a German or international cooperation partner. We approach potential partners on a confidential basis and explore possible areas for any kind of cooperation.
