Informationsasymmetrien in der familienexternen Nachfolge und ihre Überwindung

Abstract

Nach Schätzungen des IfM Bonn steht pro Jahr in 71.000 Familienunternehmen die Regelung der Nachfolge an. Rund 34.000 davon entfallen auf familienexterne Nachfolgelösungen. Da hier, anders als bei familieninternen Übergaben, weder der Käufer das Unternehmen noch der Übergeber den Käufer gut kennt, kommt es zu besonderen Problemen durch asymmetrisch verteilte Informationen. In der Folge findet sich für ein übergabereifes Unternehmen möglicherweise kein Nachfolger, so dass es geschlossen werden muss und Arbeitsplätze verloren gehen. Im Zuge der Untersuchung wurden diese Probleme sowohl theoretisch als auch empirisch analysiert. Letzteres erfolgte in Form von 31 Fallstudien, die bei Übergebern und Übernehmern durchgeführt wurden.
