Ehrhardt Leus & Associates is a corporate finance boutique focused on IT, Telecom, Media and Services, with a strong track record of successful transactions.
Paul Ehrhardt & Erik Leus founded the company in 2004, and have been involved in a significant number of transactions since then. Our clients are shareholders and management teams of IT, telecom, media and services companies. They turn to us to obtain growth capital, make strategic acquisitions, sell (part of) their business or merge with another company.
We are mostly involved in transactions ranging from € 2 mln to € 100 mln. We have extensive experience in handling cross border transactions, and worked with clients in Belgium, UK, France and Germany, and with potential buyers / investors from all over the world (including the US, China, India).
We are very strict about our industry focus and firmly believe that focus leads to success. Nevertheless, we will deviate from our industry focus in case of a Management Buy Out. The reason is simple: we really like to support management teams, which are determined to take the future in their own hands and support them in making an MBO possible. Our extensive experience in MBO’s enables us to run a very efficient and effective MBO process, with an outcome that satisfies all stakeholders.
We are fortunate; we have been able to build up a track record of highly successful and high profile transactions with excellent companies and high returns for our clients. Even more important, we work with inspiring people; people who make a difference in their industry or their specific field of expertise.
