SMEs form an important part of the German economy’s backbone, particularly in the manufacturing sector. A large number of these companies is privately owned, often by the founders or successive generations of their families. As many firms have been established in the second half of the last century, they increasingly face succession issues.
Working with Halder on an MBO provides family shareholders with a proven approach towards ownership succession: The enterprise will continue in the safe hands of a management team which knows the business inside out from many years of experience. The same thinking applies to corporate owners: When focusing on core activities, an MBO will often lead to the successful continuation of a divested business.
