Project Management for a Sales-Process

With sale of companies BLECKER ENGINEERS has a lot of operational experiences. We had responsility for project-management to sell an international company with 8 foreign leagal entities and appr. 9.000 employees. The sales process was successful handeled within a short period.

As a basis there was a clear committment from the two 50/50 shareholders to sell the company.
With the first step the whole project team (legal company, a certified public accountant and a professional consulter) was nominated. Clear rules and responsibilities were defined.

The sales process was started by building up a short company profile, a virtuell data room and a market research for potential investors. First a long list was generated and after that a short list followed by management presentations and negotiations for sales price, liabilities/risks, job committments and payment terms.

It was essential to involve unions and management into the process at a certain time.
For this kind of business you need duty to obtain consent, which in this case was also an challenging hurdle.
