COMPANYLINKS is the largest intermediary platform for buyers and sellers of medium-sized companies or holdings with an enterprise value of 3 million euros or more. This minimum threshold ensures that our prospective institutional buyers, who usually make larger investments, can be connected with suitable companies. We guarantee 100% discretion: We will only contact a potential buyer if you authorize us to.

TAX CONSULTANTS, ACCOUNTANTS, LAWYERS

You know what your client wants and you’ve identified the need for action to finance growth or to find a successor for the company. Your client wants your help to realize these projects, but as a tax consultant or accountant you may not have access to a comprehensive buyer base.
In this case COMPANYLINKS is the right partner for you. You will immediately receive specific recommendations for buyers with a concrete interest in your client’s company. COMPANYLINKS will only receive a commission in a previously agreed amount if this actually results in a transaction. That means using our service is completely free of risk.
If you need help with the structuring and realization of transactions, COMPANYLINKS will help you find a suitable M&A advisor.

INSOLVENCY LAWYERS

INSOLVENCY LAWYERS

A company is in a very advanced crisis. You are consulted, and you have to decide at short notice whether a sale can be an alternative to a settlement. COMPANYLINKS can help you identify potential investors with a concrete buying interest within a few hours. In addition, you can prove to the creditors that you have performed a transparent sale process, because we will usually be able to present you with more than just one potential buyer.

M&A ADVISORS

M&A ADVISORS

Creating a longlist of potential investors for a transaction is a time-consuming task. Even if you have many contacts to strategists and investment companies, you want to make sure to present your customers with the optimal selection of potential investors. COMPANYLINKS can help you achieve this quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. We are owner-managed and not influenced by a third-party institution. For this reason, we can provide neutral support and ensure that your transactions will be successful. Upon request, we can provide a notary for an anonymized comparison of your existing investor list with our matching.
You’re consulting a strategist on the buy side? This is another case where we can include your concrete purchase request in our database. In case we can successfully mediate a company, there will be no costs for you as COMPANYLINKS will be compensated exclusively by the seller.

BANKS

BANKS

Your house has been accompanying a company for many years. Your corporate customer advisors therefore know when a succession is imminent or when growth capital is needed.

As an independent service provider, COMPANYLINKS works across different sectors with banks and savings banks. We can help you find the optimal buyer or investor, either nationally or internationally, without interfering with your established customer relationship. Upon request, we can provide transaction consultants, lawyers with special expertise in the areas of corporate law and M&A, accountants, etc. for you and your client.

ASSOCIATIONS, CHAMBERS

ASSOCIATIONS, CHAMBERS

Many medium-sized companies seek advice from their professional associations, chambers of industry and commerce or chambers of crafts, especially on the topic of business succession. While these institutions offer good assistance for the procedure of succession, they usually can’t provide concrete advice on how to implement a company sale. Placing an ad on the websites of the respective institution alone often doesn’t lead to the desired success.
COMPANYLINKS will help you provide support for your members during the sale of their company. In addition to mediating the right buyer or seller, we can also introduce you to experienced transaction consultants, lawyers with special expertise in the areas of corporate law and M&A, as well as accountants. As an association or chamber, you can thereby ensure that your member receives the full range of consulting he or she needs to realize the company sale
