  • Getting to know each other

    On-site visit to get to know the business, management and employees

  • Getting an insight

    Handover of the annual accounts for the last 3 years and the planning for the current financial year

  • Indicative offer

    We create a compact, easy-to-understand and comprehensible indicative offer on this basis

  • Due Diligence

    The confirmation of the indicative offer by the seller is followed by the start of due diligence, which PMB or POSSEHL usually undertakes through their own management Connector

  • Binding offer

    After due diligence has been carried out, the seller receives the binding offer

  • Conclusion

    If the binding offer is approved, the sale is concluded with the closing

Convincing. Clear. Diverse.
