Company handover Kluger
Client: Kluger Sondermaschinenbau Date: December 16, 2019 Category: View Project

Takeover of the complete sales activity

The owner was able to concentrate on his business as before and thus ensure that business operations could continue unhindered – as always.


The diplomatic and very professional approach ensured the necessary discretion throughout the entire project.

Selling price above the desired price

Due to the professional conduct of negotiations, a price was achieved in the company sale that could never have been reached by the owner himself.

Successful continuation of the life’s work

Since a strategic buyer could be found, there are strong strategic effects and synergy effects.

The owner-manager had no adequate successor and wanted to go into well-earned retirement.

Problem definition


After consulting the owner group about the possible solutions (“pulling up” an employee from the second row, finding a managing director, etc.) successful sale of the company through the proven M&A process of Wanner GmbH to a strategic buyer, thus ensuring a win-win situation for both sides.

“I was able to concentrate on my business as before. Mr. Wanner was able to achieve a transaction price that we would never have reached ourselves. In this respect, also financially, it was a rewarding cooperation. Due to the diplomatic and very professional approach, the necessary discretion could be maintained throughout the entire project. Mr. Wanner’s pleasant manner and also the flexibility with regard to deadlines always ensured a very pleasant cooperation.”

One year before the company sale, the owner and managing director of the firm had made the decision to sell the business and thus enter the next phase of its life. It was important and also sensible for the company to fill the course it had set for the future with life at an early stage and thus also to secure the continued existence of the company for the benefit of the employees and customers.
