Businesses need capital to work. GCG experts can help you make the right decisions in managing your capital and transactions strategically, ensuring you are always prepared in a rapidly changing world.

the best way to realise any business goals and integrate into a complex, dynamic competitive environment.

Strategies and concepts may vary, but one thing is clear: doing nothing lets your competitors get ahead.
When using business transactions to add value for shareholders, it is essential to prepare them in detail in advance, assess them precisely and implement them rigorously. Tolerance for mistakes is low and both lenders and investors have no time for misjudgements. So the question is: how can a deal achieve the value you expect? GCG member firm experts can help with advisory services tailored specifically to meet your needs, whether in the field of business valuations or coordinating due diligence processes. They have meshed their transaction advisory services closely together, focusing on one thing: your needs and demands when it comes to capital, whether with regard to hedging, optimisation, procurement or investment. By working together, the right strategic decisions can be made, helping you to improve decision-making processes, to exploit competitive advantages and add value to your business.
Increasing competition for market share as well as internal and external growth means that finance is a key factor in making any business grow. Corporate finance is becoming more flexible, with an eye on innovative alternative forms of finance. GCG experts can help with all the matters related to alternative finance options. The strong team of GCG’s transaction experts can help develop the right financial solutions for you and can assist you throughout the whole transaction process, from financial strategy to implementing projects.
Evaluating a potential acquisition involves in-depth analysis of the target company, as well as the financial aspects involved. Knowing how these work and how they add value to the operation is a major factor. GCG’s due diligence experts analyse the financial risks and opportunities of potential M&A targets. Rather than only analysing balance sheets and accounts, comprehensive business due diligence also looks at conditions in the target company’s market and the operational circumstances to keep into consideration when deciding whether or not to buy.
A successful IPO calls for intensive professional preparation. An IPO process takes up major business resources and is always under time pressure. Professional support in accounting, budgeting and controlling, finance, tax and business law, corporate governance and project management is required. GCG experts can help by adopting an interdisciplinary consultancy approach at all stages of an IPO. Being independent from banks ensures a reliable, fair valuation and the potential to generate the highest return from going public.
