Acquisition finance

We advise and finance company acquisitions

We arrange and structure your debt financing

Are you planning to acquire a medium-sized company? For example, for reasons of succession planning within the company or the sale of peripheral areas of group companies ("spin-offs")? We arrange and structure the necessary debt financing, both as syndicate leader and in "club" transactions.

As DZ BANK, we are your partner for acquisition financing for medium-sized companies in the German-speaking market. We also participate selectively in international acquisition financing and are represented by corresponding teams in the bank's branches in New York and London.


Basis of financing

The basis for acquisition financing is the forecast sustainable cash flow over the financing period. This determines the debt potential of the company to be acquired. For the analysis, we draw on a comprehensive information package, so-called due diligence reports, and the results of our own cash flow model.

Therefore, companies with the following characteristics are particularly suitable:

  • a stable cash flow profile
  • a leading market position in the relevant market
  • a diversified customer and supplier base.

Start-ups and restructuring cases are among those unsuitable for acquisition financing.
