About us

Holistic M&A advice: The ARTHOS 360° approach

With our 360° approach we can advise our customers in a targeted and comprehensive manner – from the initial planning through the detailed preparation to the efficient execution of a transaction. That is why we see ourselves not only as deal makers, but rather as competent M&A experts, experienced process managers and financial advisers for our client’s long-term goals.
M&A 360° services

Specialised in digital media, IT and high-tech companies

Our focus on digital media, information technology and high-tech industries provides several powerful advantages to our customers: we know the M&A terms and conditions, business models and decision-makers within these industry sectors. With this knowledge, we are able to implement sustainable, creative solutions. Which is why our M&A projects achieve above average results.

The advantage with the holistic M&A 360° approach:
Support before, during and after an M&A transaction

Many experts focus on specific issues of an M&A transaction. By contrast, ARTHOS Corporate Finance provides holistic solutions for success with M&A 360°. With this in mind, we keep an eye on the entire transaction for the client. Regardless of whether the aim is, for instance, to optimise the purchase price, reduce the liability risk, accelerate timing until closing or secure company sites.

Arthos credentials

Goal-oriented solutions and joint successes

Over the past 25 years, ARTHOS partners have successfully closed more than 150 transactions. From classic company disposals – many of them with industry-specific earn-out components – to complex carve-outs to buy & build concepts, add-on acquisitions, IPOs, secondary buyouts and PE/VC fundraising. For each project, we developed individual, tailor-made solutions, because we basically regard M&A as the realisation of a long-term, individually defined strategy. And last but not least, our excellent contacts and knowledge in the key sectors bring together the right strategic partners – a prerequisite for a successful merger.
