The initial situation ...

... for the buy side

Numerous buyers of companies would like to invest in the attartive German Mittelstand (German Medium-Sized Companies). In their search for suitable target companies, they optimize their homepage, send their search criteria to selected M&A advisors, seek mentions in relevant magazines and travel across Germany to present themselves and their investment criteria personally. All this consumes resources that cannot be used in the investor's core business. We wondered: can't this be done more efficiently?

... for the sell-side

On the other hand, there is the company seller or his M&A advisor. He has to research potential buyers (investors or companies) from different sources who could theoretically be interested in his target company. Often it is not known who is the contact person there and whether the companies are generally interested in acquisitions. Current developments in the investors strategy also require personal contact. We wondered: can't this be done more efficiently?

The idea

A plattform, a smart tool, that lets you generate a long list in seconds and serves the needs of the buy-side and the sell-side. SLISTER is the idea of experienced M&A professionals who know the challenges of the buy-side as well as the challenges of the Sell-side. Based on this knowledge they developed SLISTER.

The name

„SLISTER - what does it stand for?“

We convert the longlist into the Smartlist, because we provide the perfect match with contact details of the relevant person. The tool ist the SmartLister in short: SLISTER.
