In the absence of a successor, what should be done? Or what if the economic situation is so tense that change is urgently needed in order to remain viable in the future? In any event, “closing up stop” is the worst of all solutions, says Jens Freyler, Managing Director of the Hamburg-based management consultancy Knox. He and Bernd Zipper discuss the opportunities that exist in a (partial) sale or in a merger with other companies – and what needs to be taken into account in each case – in the brand-new episode of the Beyond Print podcast.
Does turnover equal sales amount? What factors determine the value of a company? At what point is it better to seek professional help from an M&A consultant – and how does a sales process actually work? Bernd Zipper and Jens Freyler provide answers to these questions in the latest podcast episode. And in the process, they also clear up one or two prejudices, provide insights into current developments in the market, and explain why it can be a good time to initiate a sales process despite Corona.
Another exciting feature is Print-eXchange.de, a kind of company exchange for the printing industry. Jens Freyler explains the background and concept of the new online platform and why it is also available in English. Keywords: internationalization and cross-border transactions.
If you’re thinking about selling your company, joining forces with partners, or perhaps are looking for an attractive print store to invest in yourself, you should definitely tune into the podcast!
