After an initial acquisition of an engineering service company for technical building equipment this client aimed to extend this service capability for regional coverage within the DACH region by further acquisitions and to from a service group for this target market.
dp identified a long list of more than 400 candidates within this fragmented market. By research of company information and evaluation against formerly with the client agreed investment criteria we were able to reduce this amount to a short list of 15 prospective candidates for contacting. dp established contacts and conducted first talks and meetings to determine the coverage level of interests between candidates and the client. As result, we were able to handover 2 leads with whom the client was able to enter directly into the due diligence and negotiation phase.
