Abstract [en]

The Bachelor Thesis focuses on the research of the dissolution process. Recent literature claims that up today there is a theoretical gap in this field. So far models of reasons, stages, actors and communication strategies are evolved and here explained. The empirical investigation of the Bachelor Thesis focuses on two research questions – the investigation of the dissolution process in Eastern Germany as well as the investigation of the impact of relationship properties on the dissolution process. CEOs of SME in Eastern Germany were interviewed about their experience with dissolutions. The findings of the study match the theory only partially. The reality of the dissolution process is through the theory well-explained, while the second research question of this thesis is more difficult to answer. The relationship properties and their impact on the process are still very fuzzy and only vague assumptions can be made within this study. Besides the outcome of the investigation further new variables appeared to be influencing the dissolution process. For instance the industry and its properties are an important influencing factor for the dissolution process and the theory of Porter's five forces seem to be crucial.
