Altran Technologies S.A., a French-based global engineering consulting company, has several growth opportunities: the expansion to the Czech Republic and/or Slovakia (organic growth), and/or the acquisition of other companies, one of them being Bertrandt AG, a German-based engineering consultancy firm (external growth). The goal of the masters thesis is to investigate these two opportunities by providing Altran with particular, required information. The introductory part of the thesis provides a theoretical background about the types of growth strategies and their implementation, and the basics about valuation, followed by a short presentation of Altran. Concerning the regional expansion, macroeconomic data on the two countries, a list of the potential clients (mainly German-based companies) as well as the salary and wage levels are presented. The following chapter addresses the valuation of Bertrandt by applying both the DCF and the multiples approach. The GDP growth rate of both economies lies clearly above the EU average and, as expected, the salary and wage levels are much lower than those in Germany. Moreover, both countries feature attractive prices for gasoline, gas and electricity. The list of potential clients includes firms from the automotive, aviation and defense, IKT, pharmaceutical, energy and rail sector. However, in contrast to Slovakia, the Czech Republic is considered politically unstable. Based on a thorough analysis of the past development of Bertrandt, in addition with recent market studies, the DCF analysis states an enterprise value of 699 million. Applying multiples resulted in clearly lower values, ranging from 335 to 693 million. Despite the politically sound environment of Bertrandt, Altran would inevitably have to cope with restructuring problems.
