Finally time for a new life plan

Mr Greppmair from KERN assisted me with the sale of my caretaker service in Munich in an always pleasant and very competent manner. In just nine months, he managed to sell my company at a satisfactory price despite falling sales and the Corona crisis. In doing so, he made a decisive contribution to a new life plan that I had longed for for a long time. Many thanks for that!

Even the particularly difficult tasks ... were solved optimally

I am happy to have chosen KERN as my advisor in my succession process. In the run-up, I also examined other offers and for me, the seriousness and security of KERN was the decisive criterion. At all times I felt that my KERN ? consultant at all times. Even the particularly difficult tasks, such as financing questions and the drafting of contracts, were solved in the best possible way. From me again and again!

Without the view from outside, we would probably never have reached our goal so quickly and safely

In the context of my company succession, the merger with a competitor company was the ideal solution. The KERN team, and especially Mr. Koerber, accompanied us sensitively as a moderator and process facilitator and combined the interests of both negotiating partners well. Without the view from outside and the negotiating experience, we would probably never have reached our goal so quickly and safely!

... we succeeded in finding exactly the right company for our particular niche

We had our growth strategy accompanied by the specialists from KERN. With a precise target analysis and detailed market research, we succeeded in finding exactly the right company for our particular niche. The effort involved in such a step should not be underestimated. With KERN, we have found professional support. At the same time, the succession problem of the company to be taken over could be solved substantially and in the long term.

Professional and reliable until successful completion

Especially in the difficult phases, my advisor closed the gaps and paved the way for a further negotiation.
Everything was professional and reliable, meetings outside normal business hours were possible at any time.
Professionally, I feel comprehensive and in good hands, the successful conclusion is an expression of KERN competence!

Without Karl Rehfuß I would probably have despaired of the story long ago

Without Karl Rehfuß and his often selfless and always optimistic commitment, I would probably have despaired of history long ago. All of us here are really glad to have had exactly this CORE expert at our side in these past difficult times.

Especially the seriousness and professionalism gave me a secure feeling at all times

My pre-selection decision to 100% proved to be the right one. KERN did a really good job from the preparation of my company in an exposé, to the search for buyers, to the facilitation of negotiations and the complete implementation of my succession. In particular, the seriousness and professionalism gave me a secure feeling at all times. Our goal was successfully achieved in a good 8 months. I am happy to recommend KERN to others.

KERN has clearly opened a path for my son

KERN's coaching has clearly opened up a path for my son, with which we can now dedicate ourselves together to the project of generational change, in the sense of continuing the family business. We as parents simply cannot convey some things in the same way and help to realise how a professional coach can.

The KERN database with hundreds of potential interested parties of all kinds has proven to be particularly valuable

A succession process is a very special business with its own rules, of which we had no idea even after 30 years of self-employment. We experienced this phase as one of the most gruelling of our professional lives and are glad that it is over. Dr. Slawek structured the process and guided us through it, respecting all the legal pitfalls. He was available at all times and, especially in the gruelling last weeks before the notary contract, he was our ever friendly and confident rock.

The determination of the company's value by an external company gave us the necessary self-confidence to negotiate an appropriate price. The KERN database of hundreds of potential interested parties of all kinds has proved particularly valuable. Without engaging KERN, we would not have met any of these prospective buyers, especially our current buyer. If - God forbid - we had to look for a successor for our life's work again, we would do it the same way.

... are surprised what great energies have been released in all of us

Change also means dealing with the culture, the goals, the responsibilities and the "rules of the game" in a company. With KERN, we have embarked on the exciting path of creating our own individual corporate philosophy and have been surprised at the great energies that have been released in all of us. For the benefit of our customers, employees and the entire company. Thanks to KERN for the targeted and professional moderation and development.

Speed impressive, form always appropriate to the situation, behaviour honest ...

I would like to thank you very much for your support during the sale of the company.

... We have achieved our goal and can definitely recommend working with KERN.

The KERN team was recommended to me as part of our company sale and, in retrospect, we are very glad to have received this tip. The negotiation process for the sale was complex, lengthy and sometimes threatened by emotional misunderstandings in the outcome. However, thanks to the great experience and skill of our KERN consultant, we achieved our goal and can definitely recommend working with KERN.
