Acquisitions – selling and buying

Our sales process is invariably based on active collaboration and is efficient, high quality, and highly cost-effective. We always keep the customer informed of the status. Together we evaluate different options and make decisions based on the customer’s best interests.

Unlike many companies in this industry, we also provide an assessment of the potential for integration. It is essential for the success of the acquisition, which is why we always discuss this with our customers. Expertise in this area comes from our own broad integration experience.

We have a strong focus on customer strategy so that every acquisition meets the strategic objectives and is aligned with the plan, improves competitiveness and increases the value of the company’s shares.

Market research

We often help our customers make the best decision by studying the situation in a particular market. Together we select attractive companies in line with our strategy and review for our customers the terms and conditions of the deal. Various options and combinations are possible, so there is usually a reasonable package available for both parties.

 

Market research

Market research is a great way to get reliable information about potential purchases and is often the first step in our clients’ acquisition assignment.

Most of these assignments go through some form of acquisition. We tailor the surveys to the needs of our customers. You need to know your customers to make better plans to grow your business or expand your market.

Valuation

Where appropriate, we will conduct a separate valuation for companies using standard valuation formulas, realized prices for similar transactions in a specific geographic area, and where necessary, anonymous tests of real market value.

 

Consultation

If our clients want help in a particular area or are considering different options, we can help on a purely consultative basis. If you have questions, you can always ask us. Brief advice can be free of charge.

 

“We wanted to focus on our core businesses (domains, web hosting, and WordPress services) because in those areas we are a leading company. Wolfcorner helped us to divest our data center business. Now we have more time to focus on our service sales via webshop and to further develop self-service functionality.”

Chairman of the Board, Louhi Networks Oy

“Jarmo’s expertise, calmness, and good negotiating skills helped resolve the buyer’s and seller’s stalemates in the stagnant phase of our business, helping both sides to do so. He acted brilliantly neutral in a difficult situation where no consensus could be found.”
