Unternehmensnachfolgen in Deutschland 2014 bis 2018


  • Kay, Rosemarie
  • Suprinovič, Olga


Wegen fehlender amtlicher Statistiken schätzt das IfM Bonn seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre die Anzahl der vor der Übergabe stehenden Unternehmen in Deutschland. Die vorliegende Schätzung für den Zeitraum 2014 bis 2018 kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass etwa 135.000 Unternehmen zur Übergabe anstehen, weil ihre Eigentümer aus persönlichen Gründen aus dem Unternehmen ausscheiden werden. Von diesen Übergaben sind im betrachteten Fünfjahreszeitraum rund 2 Mio. Beschäftigte betroffen.
