We are the leading M&A advisor in the domestic market and since 2005 we have advised over 50 clients in transactions worth over US$1.2 billion. Keeping a low number of projects averaging up to 5 per year is our business model which is based on quality and dedicated work with each client.
Our responsibility to customers is based on integrity and openness. Good is not enough for us. We strive for the extraordinary.
Since 2014 we are the only Croatian member of Oaklins – the world’s most successful and most experienced mid-market organization of M&A advisors. Since then the clients have the opportunity to benefit from support of the entire network of advisors with broad experience in relevant industries and transactions, local knowledge about foreign markets and direct access to key decision-makers in those markets.
Although the focus of the business is on M&A, in certain specific situations we also provide strategic advisory services and advisory in business restructuring and reorganization projects.
In 55% of closed M&A transactions to date, we acted as a sell-side advisor, whereas we were positioned on the buy-side in the remaining 45%. Of all the transactions 70% were cross-border, while 30% were domestic.
Our passion constantly encourages us to upgrade our expertise and ambition to be the best. Our dynamic model, where we work seamlessly between our local roots and the global scene, reveals the best opportunities for our clients. Our responsibility to our clients and partners is based on commitment and integrity, creating long-term, fruitful relationships.
With a focus on these values, we realize the best deals and empower our clients on their journey to the extraordinary.
