Mergers & Acquisitions

FEV Transaction

Services

With its technical and industry background FEV Consulting is the ideal partner for all investors who plan acquisitions or divestments in the automotive industry and other related industries with engineering focus.

These highly technology-driven industries demand for very specialized expertise in order to understand and commercially evaluate emerging technologies and their potential as well as changing markets and shifting ore competencies.

As an integral part of the automotive industry FEV Consulting offers this expertise as well as valuable insights into the respective market dynamics. With our worldwide expert network and the strategic, operational and personal experience of our consultants we are able to provide our client a competitive advantage in all four phases of a transaction.

We help you to find the right partner or acquisition target and can resort to our extensive network and the broad client base of our mother company. With our longtime experience in Top Management Consulting and the technical know-how of FEV we evaluate for you the technical and commercial potential of technologies and companies. In the post-acquisition phase we design the integration as well as eventually required restructuring and support you in their successful realization. Finally, we also develop exit scenarios for you, sharpen the profile of the planned divestiture and support you in finding new investors.
