We don‘t like Target Searches. It has a low probability of success when we do it. But I would surely recommend my clients to you.

Free of charge:

For sellers, their consultants and capital seekers, FaMAS offers a free option to find investors and buyers. FaMAS is uniquely suited to finding international investors. Over 95% of our investment partners come from one of 90 countries, have no head office in Germany and seek strategic investment opportunities. Often, these investors are not found through extensive research by leading M & A companies. However, FaMAS does not offer sell-side advice. We recommend suitable service providers (also free).

100% for investors:

FaMAS has an unbeatable service for finding investments. In addition to numerous professional M & A advisors, even leading international accountancy firms recommend us to their clients for investment research. Since 1999, the search for investment has been professionalized and has now been implemented in over 10 standardized procedures. Numerous small and large companies, private investors and even private equity houses commission FaMAS. The running costs are cheaper than for an own employee. The effectiveness is 10x-100x higher – especially in off-market opportunities.

For consultants, corporate finance advisors, M & A consultants, WPers, lawyers, interim managers and other business consultants of all kinds offers FaMAS cooperations. FaMAS categorically does not provide sell-side advice or legal (legal, financial, tax) due diligence. FaMAS is limited to 100% on the search for equity. Of course, many other services for investors and company vendors are linked to this. In these cases we gladly recommend our cooperation partners. Of course, we also like to pay finder fees. Last but not least, we can also assist you on a case-by-case basis in finding investors.

We work with different Insolvency Administrator Practices and supported in excess of 50 company transactions. FaMAS has impressed us in a very competitive bidding process with its Investor. Its speed, level of professionalism and execution of the transaction were unheard of. We mutually signed the purchase agreement in 6 weeks after the first meeting at the company. Most of European Investors will struggle to achieve such a professional performance – for investors from far east I have not heard of such a case. Especially, as FaMAS also had to coordinate 16 different consultants, among them a big 4 firm, and stakeholders from the investor company. Impressive!
Founder and Managing Director of a specialised Turnaround Consulting firm
Dimitrij and his team at FaMAS GmbH have found a unique deal opportunity for us. It has been a complicated and difficult process which would have been a lot more difficult, maybe even impossible for us to close without his help. We were impressed with his outstanding tactical advisory and insights into many complex matters. This is why we asked him to continue to support us after the deal and through the turnaround management. I recommend him 100% to anyone except our competitors.
Chairman of large stock-listed Taiwanese corporation
FaMAS did a fantastic job coordinating and guiding us through the entire acquisition process. I am engaged in the business of providing financial and operational turnaround, restructuring and interim management services to troubled companies for more than 10 years, but I have never had an advisory firm doing such a great job. We would not have been able to do the investment without FaMAS.

Doing distress deals in Germany was new for us and we therefore needed some help and guidance. We decided to choose FaMAS instead of a large professional service company, simply because being a small transaction specialist, FaMAS was more flexible on our needs and their cost structure is substantially lower. They did a great job.

It has been the first time that a professional service company helped us to really understand the opportunity, avoid pitfalls and even advising us not do a deal because of the high level of risk and a unfavorable valuation. I would recommend FaMAS to every other investor out there.

FaMAS supported me on each aspect of the transaction – from screening, due diligence, financing, interim management, etc. etc. etc. Great service. Delivered always on time. Very flexible. Provided greater service than most of large professional companies for only a fraction of the costs.

Thank you Dimitrij for helping me in this investment analysis to avoid making a big mistake and investing into the wrong company at wrong terms. It has been a painful process with many surprises and personally difficult to realize and accept the risks. I really wanted to do the deal but now I am glad I did not.
