Corporate philosophy

It is value that matters

Management thinking has changed dramatically over the last half-century—and by necessity, corporate finance has changed with it. Today there is only one metric worth talking about: value.

Value creation has become the dominant corporate philosophy for a very simple reason: it focuses attention on the one thing that actually matters. As value has become the key metric by which we measure performance, corporate finance has become one of the most important means for achieving that value.

Roland Berger’s corporate finance unit was set up to respond to these shifting dynamics. Our services are based on extensive experience across many large and complex investor support and M&A projects. We have helped many of the world’s top companies and financial investors understand the true essence of value creation and make smarter decisions in investor support and M&A.

Investor Support

Making the right investment decisions requires a trusted partner—someone with profound industrial and methodological know-how, someone who identifies the true value of a target by providing holistic commercial and operational due diligence support. The right partner doesn’t simply tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you really need to know about the industry's success factors and the target's business model.

We stay with our clients along the entire asset's investment cycle

Whether you are a private equity firm, a corporate investor, an infrastructure investor, a sovereign wealth fund, or a family office, Roland Berger offers comprehensive commercial advice across the entire investment cycle—whether you are buying or divesting companies. Once an acquisition has been completed, our expert consultants help you increase the value of your asset with a 100-day program and post-merger integration. We stay with our clients along the asset's investment cycle. From the holding period to the end of the road, we help with value creation programs and add-on acquisitions all the way through to preparing for a successful exit with a strategy review and equity story, as well as developing a business plan.

Mergers & Acquisitions

It’s tempting to think of M&A as purely a numbers game. You compare share prices. You gauge investor sentiment. You measure value. And while all this is necessary, there’s more to it than that. There is an art to M&A, as well as a science. You need to look beyond the individual metrics and see the story they tell—the story of your company’s future.

Our M&A professionals offer cutting-edge, independent advice that puts you in control of the situation. We can assist you with sell- and buy-side advisory, carve-out execution, joint venture structuring, target searches, company valuations, IPO advice, capital structure optimization, and debt management. In complex M&A situations, we carry out the relevant services with precision and speed. We help you see the story behind your numbers.
