Simon-Kucher– the commercial due diligence and value-creation advisor

We believe that sound strategic due diligence sets the stage for successful value creation. Our buy-side commercial due diligence work is known for deep market analysis, a detailed assessment of customer relations and the competitive landscape, as well as a thorough assessment of the sell-side business plan. In addition, we focus more than others on innovative and at the same time reliable value-add potentials, driven by our unique commercial and digital expertise. Our sell-side clients profit from the same commercial acumen and rigor. In all we do, we believe in the power of an entrepreneurial advisor role, taking on our clients’ challenges as our own.

Simon-Kucher is the commercial advisor of choice for high-growth targets, adding value along the deal-cycle. We focus on deals and portfolio companies for which top-line development is the key value driver, pre- and post deal. Target industries in our focus are: Industrial Goods, Business Services, Software and Tech, Mobility, Consumer Goods and Life Sciences. Our dedicated Transaction Services team works hand-in-hand with our renown industry experts, supporting PE firms as well as strategic investors along the deal cycle.

Simon-Kucher is the leading advisor for top-line-focused value creation strategies for PE portfolio companies. Our commercial value creation work is based on a deep understanding of different business models, monetization strategies and related volume as well as price drivers. Our advice and implementation support is pragmatic and leads to measurable results well within the regular holding period of our clients.

Further, Simon-Kucher understands the tremendous value-add of impact investing – both for our clients and their portfolio companies as well as for society in general. We have thus created an Impact Investing Task Force, which actively supports investors pre- and post-deal. Especially with a view on software targets and impact scale-ups, we also support venture investments.
