There’s hardly any industry that’s experiencing greater or faster changes. Digitalization has made the forms and possibilities of media services proliferate. Information and content is available in practically any form – which also causes it to lose value.

There’s hardly any indu­s­try that’s expe­ri­en­cing grea­ter or fas­ter chan­ges. Digi­ta­liza­tion has made the forms and pos­si­bi­li­ties of media ser­vices pro­li­fe­rate. Infor­ma­tion and con­tent is available in practi­cally any form – which also cau­ses it to lose value.

Exis­ting reve­nue models are being chal­len­ged by fal­ling reve­nues in com­pa­nies’ core busi­nes­ses. At the same time, sig­ni­fi­cant invest­ments in new, mostly digi­tal ser­vices are requi­red. Stan­ding still is not an option. Sys­te­matic adjust­ments of the busi­ness models are nee­ded to manage this change suc­cess­fully and open up new pro­s­pects for the future.

Ebner Stolz is fami­liar with the full gamut of chal­len­ges wrought by this change, thanks to the breadth and diver­sity of its cli­en­tele. We can help deve­lop and mar­ket new for­mats. We pre­pare pub­lis­hing com­pa­nies to go pub­lic. We know the acco­un­ting pit­falls for online ser­vices or pub­lis­hing and film rights. And we know the pro­fit-kil­lers – like chan­ges in value-added tax.

In other words, Ebner Stolz can offer all-inclu­sive exper­tise in your sec­tor from our inter­di­s­ci­p­li­nary teams. You can dis­cuss tax or legal aspects – for example, of audits of annual finan­cial sta­te­ments – with the right col­lea­gues on the team. Our mana­ge­ment con­sul­tants can offer you addi­tio­nal peace of mind, whe­ther in opti­mi­zing busi­ness models, tran­sac­ti­ons or (under heavy eco­no­mic pres­sure) in restruc­tu­ring situa­ti­ons. The cru­cial point – and you can rely on this – is that we’re quick to recog­nize pro­b­lem areas or areas that need action, and to move accor­din­gly.
