Each project is unique to us. Our costs for each modular service package depends on type of service, time, number of experts and business volume. Of course our cost structure is competitive but transparent.

Is there a minimum deal flow in M & A?
Yes. Since spotting a buy-side or sell-side M & A opportunity, pre-evaluation, evaluation, communication with all involved participants requires the full attention of our experts and time a project must meet some requirements. One of the criteria is the project volume should reach a minimum of € 25 m - € 50 m. Our clients expect that buy-side and sell-side companies are highly profitable. Non-profitable M & A opportunities are considered a re-structuring business projects and follow different requirements.

What makes Hesse & Associate so different?

This flexibility allows you to reach out further and take advantage of a wider knowledge base. Our best practice and methods are triggered to enable you to get the best results for your organic and non-organic growth project.
