goetzpartners' Private Equity Consulting team supported IHSE management and Brockhaus Private Equity with a Commercial Vendor Due Diligence on the sale of IHSE Group.

Also, the company's business model was assessed, incl. a detailed analysis of IHSE's routes-to-market and customer structure. A bottom-up market assessment of multiple end-segments in the pro audio-visual industry as well as an evaluation of IHSE's competitive positioning was conducted. Conclusively, the results were used to assess the management's business plan and to evaluate further growth opportunities.
