ABOUT CNX TRANSACTION PARTNERS

Since its foundation in 2010 CNX Transaction Partners supports entrepreneurs, business owners and investors with the thorough preparation and successful realization of their corporate transactions – depending on the situation at the sell-side or the buy-side.

When you intend to sell your business – often your life-time achievement – you want to make sure you realize the real value of your company. However, many transactions show a significant value increase only shortly after the company is sold to a professional buyer by the implementation of proven methods. For the seller this means that the full potential of his business is not entirely realized while selling. The reason for this is that a company is often sold in the state that it is currently in.

Therefore, it is our philosophy to reach the full potential of a company by implementing proven methods prior to selling it. By means of a thorough transaction preparation we realize the real value of a company for you as the seller.

You take advantage not only of our experience from numerous executed transactions at the sell and the buy-side, but we also support you with our strategic, sector specific (where required), operational, digital, and practical know-how and experience.
