On the basis of a number of interviews and possible plans, EVG Group analyses whether the application and the initial proposal fit within its framework.
After the screening, the formal part is started. This process is carried out and coordinated by EVG Group’s investment team, supplemented with external specialists if deemed necessary. This phase is also referred to as due diligence and involves analyzing and validating the business or business plan with regard to finance, legal aspects, personnel and organization, taxation, etc. as well as evaluating the customer portfolio, product, market and competitive position.
During the due diligence process it is the intention that EVG Group and the entrepreneur reach agreement on the outlines of the transaction and document this in a participation agreement.
As soon as both parties agree to the terms of the participation agreement, the investment plan is submitted to the board and its financiers.
