Company Valuations / Corporate Finance

You are a shareholder, a company, a bank or an investor and need a company valuation?

We will be happy to support you with our professional expertise in all business management and valuation-related matters.


Company valuations are a matter for the boss: they are carried out personally by one of the two partners personally.


Matthias Kleinlosen is a certified public accountant and CVA (Certified Valuation Expert) and therefore recognized expert in the valuation of companies and assets. His focus is on the valuation of medium-sized companies and young companies (start-ups).


Andreas Kempis is a certified public accountant and a specialist in international tax consulting. He is the ideal expert for all questions in the areas of tax accounting or tax due diligence.

Taking over the internal audit function

You are a medium-sized company and want to introduce an internal audit?

We would be happy to support you in this. At the beginning we will advise you whether it is more efficient for you to carry out this task with your own staff or in cooperation with external specialists. If you decide on an in-house solution, we will advise you on setting up the internal audit department, and if necessary (with the help of partners) also on selecting personnel. We will prepare sample audit plans for your employees to follow in the future. If you decide to out-source the internal audit, we will take over the execution of the tasks.


Whatever you decide: We will help you with our experience and an objective view from the outside. In doing so, we become concrete: We provide advice on process optimization and risk reduction, and we also undertake special (forensic) audits.

Transaction projects are also a matter for the boss at KHS: In each of these projects, one of the two partners, Andreas Kempis or Matthias Kleinlosen, is the direct contact person for all the stakeholders and is involved in the operational side of the project.

Support for corporate reorganization and restructuring
