The sale of your company – an emotional matter

One of Conpair’s most important tasks as an M&A advisor is to support our clients in making important decisions and taking necessary steps in the process so that upcoming transactions can be carried out successfully.

Such corporate transactions also include company sales, which demand a lot from an entrepreneur, both on a business basis and emotionally. Especially when it comes to family businesses that have to be handed over to a new owner, this means a break in professional and private life that requires a lot of strength.

In the long term, of course, the goal of any business is to move towards a secure future. In some cases, or after a certain period of time, this means handing the company over to other hands. The sale of the company will certainly present you with a great challenge.

Do you need advice on company succession?

The very thought of a succession for your own company can lead to concerns and raise many questions.

  • How can you be sure that your company will be continued in your best interest?
  • What do the necessary steps look like?
  • How do you go about it?

This uncertainty is joined by the emotional side, which makes it difficult to make rational decisions.

Often, finding a suitable successor is already a major problem. Numerous family- or owner-managed SMEs remain unsuccessful in their search and decide as a subsequent step to sell the company to external investors. If you have also reached this step, you should not hesitate and consult an expert.
