Finance advisory | Corporate Finance

We know the financing sector and have worked with a variety of investors and banks. This gives your company new financial scope for optimal conditions, also in times of distress and crisis. In discussions with investors and banks, we support you with optimal preparation and presentation of your needs and strategy. Due to our experience, we know the characteristics of specific financing partners as well as current market developments and align them within our advisory accordingly.

Furthermore, there is often potential for optimization in daily business. Medium-sized companies are usually depending on a single bank or use private assets to cover operational risks. In addition, companies frequently rely on short-term funding to cover long-term risks. Zerbach & Company starts here and develops an optimal financial structure.

Support in the context of the Corona crisis

We also support you in coping with the current corona crisis. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can provide you and your company with targeted support in identifying and implementing possible optimisation measures, e.g. to secure and control liquidity, as well as in communicating with current financing partners and in raising additional debt and equity capital. In addition, we have many years of experience and references in the sale of companies in special situations ("distressed M&A").
