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.
