LEADING FOOD M&A ADVISOR
MATTERLING is a trusted M&A advisor for transactions in the food & beverage sector in the German speaking region. We firmly believe that our sector focus and dedication is fundamental in our clients’ success. Our clients benefit from our in-depth and up-to-date industry knowledge, our leading advisory track record, our global relationships with investors, buyers and targets, and our hands-on, senior-led advice.
We advise clients undertaking a company disposal or selling off their own business. Our objective is to obtain the best combination of price, deal structure and cultural compatibility within an agreed timescale. We develop a strong equity story and establish a qualified short-list of potential buyers. We create a discreet but intensely competitive bidding situation, lead the negotiations and actively manage the sale process through to legal completion.
We advise clients seeking to acquire in the context of strategic acquisitions, buy&build strategies, LBOs, MBOs, MBIs, or public takeover. Through leveraging our sector specialization, we can generate proprietary investment ideas. We are experienced ‘door openers’ and initiate a confidential dialogue with the targets. We value target companies, recommend the most suitable way to structure and finance the deal, and negotiate the best possible purchase.
We help growth companies raise capital from investors that best fit in terms of industry focus, business model, and growth stage. Raising capital can be a challenging and time-consuming task, but we know how we best support our clients so they can remain focused on running their business. And through leveraging our strong international network, we provide efficient access to a variety of relevant funding sources, including VC, PE, family offices, and corporates.
