Delivering Creative M&A Advice & Solutions
The BCMS Switzerland Story
Three decades of advisory & transaction experience
Launched in 2012 as part of the international expansion of the BCMS Family of Companies owned by the Rebbettes Family, BCMS Switzerland SA was initially located at what is now the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Pully, Vaud. Today the company is headquartered in the beautiful Port of Ouchy on the shores of Lac Leman from where it operates as a key partner to companies across Switzerland and Europe in the mid-market space acting as their principal and discrete M&A advisor. The company has an antenna in the vicinity of Zurich. Clients choose to work with us because of our 30-year track record in selling companies to financially strong strategic acquirers from all over the world.
The company benefits from a wealth of transactional experience in both domestic & cross-border deals. Almost 80% of our projects and transactions involve an international dimension. Our clients benefit from M&A advice & project delivery capabilities that enable us to manage the M&A process from A to Z working across all the disciplines needed to successfully fulfil our client's expectations. Our aim is always to exceed our clients expectations in terms of the value anticipated for the company, alongside securing the best future home for the business following its sale. Whilst no company can guarantee the sale of any company, we can prepare the ground to give you the best possible chance to do so.
Our operational teams are committed to providing the most effective and tailored strategies around the issue of preparing company shareholders for the sale of what is often their largest asset.

The Path to Success
Our aim is to ensure that each of our clients has a choice of financially strong & strategically motivated buyers. Having a choice of buyers enables us to A) complete the best transaction, B) deliver a robust & superior price and deal structure, C) secure a solid future for the company, by matching your business with acquirers who want to invest in the future. Ultimately our client chooses the right buyer. However by optimizing the process through leveraging a dynamic research model and by understanding each negotiation point we ensure that our client remains in control of the sale process.
A Comprehensive Approach
We design a company sale strategy to precisely match your objectives. It is never a case of one size fits all, however there are a number of fundamentals that are consistent and will provide a framework around which our experienced teams will create the conditions for a successful transaction. An M&A process can be described as being like a sailing ship travelling to a specific destination. Together with you we set the sails within a dynamic environment often buffeted by different interests but with one objective in mind, to arrive at your predetermined destination.
Diligence isn't just a word we use to describe the later stages of a transaction, it's about the entire process, whether creating the right documentation, developing an appealing but defensible financial plan to interest potential buyers in the future of your business, comprehensively researching the market to identify buyers and secure the feedback required to steer the project, generating & negotiating multiple offers, as well as driving the later stage due diligence towards an agreed completion date. We guide you so that, without surprises, everyone is fully prepared for the sale process.
