The enlargement of the shareholders’ base – in contrast to a traditional bank financing – represents more often an important and alternative course of action for many small and middle market entrepreneurs and companies. The reasons for such a step are manifold. Fresh wind, gain of know-how, knowledge sharing and a strong network are only a few arguments for a new shareholder. However, the persons involved on the corporate side often lack an understanding for the process and the objectives of the party 'on the opposite side of the table'. Understandably, such a process is normally a one-off situation for many entrepreneurs and companies, with the rules of the game sometimes in need of an explanation. Similar is the situation with regard to the acquisition of an acquisition financing, in a management buy-out / management buy-in or in an early-stage financing.
