Acquisition Finance - Your strong partner for acquisition financing.


The financing structure is an important success factor in corporate acquisitions. Together with you as the potential shareholder of the company we develop comprehensive, cash flow-oriented financing solutions. In addition to provide the funding of the purchase price, we include also facilities for add-on acquisitions, capital expenditures, working capital needs and general corporate purposes.

We structure and arrange the financing of your transaction, while taking into account legal and fiscal requirements and your individual situation. Our high-performing team has a long-term experience in the small and mid-cap sector as well as in large-cap transactions. We also support you with the well-founded industry expertise of our Bank (especially in the automotive, mechanical engineering, energy and healthcare/pharma as well as technology, media and telecommunication sector). LBBW as your financing partner stands for professional support and a successful closing of the transaction.

We will gladly provide our support for the following financing needs:

  • You are or intend to become a managing director and would like to acquire the company, either alone or together with partners ("MBO/MBI").
  • You as a financial sponsor are looking for investments in target companies or financial investments (“LBO”) or intend to buy a business segment of a company and need appropriate non-recourse-financing (“Spin-off” or “Carve out”)
  • You as a strategic buyer are planning to take over or merge with another company to implement your corporate strategy (strategic acquisition).
  • You would like to optimize the capital structure of your company (“Recapitalization”),
  • You plan to take over the majority of shares of a publicly listed company (“Public Offer”) or to take over the majority of shares of a publicly listed company and may pursue a delisting (“Public-to-Private”-Transaction)
  • You need a temporary financing until the final financing structure has been set up (“Bridge Financing”).

Our aspiration is to be your reliable partner, also after the transaction.
