Acquisition of a company

A consortium of investment bankers and private equity investors were considering buying a German cable TV network.

Solon performed the operative and technical due diligence. The Solon team carried out in-depth data investigations and set up interviews with the management of the acquisition target. Parallel to this, Solon set up an overlay-structure on the business model of the firm and corrected fundamental disagreements. The results of the due diligence were the basis for the consortium’s investment decisions, for the financing banks and used as valuation basis by the rating agencies.

As a result, finance committals of over 500 million euros were secured.
