“Operating Helios for the past 30 years, we never considered finding a new home for our great company. Oaklins assisted throughout the process, demonstrated a solid understanding of and experience from our industry, and was excellent in uncovering and conveying the unique characteristics of Helios in the process. This effort, as well as gathering the group of stakeholders, has put us in a great position, enabling Helios to operate on a larger scale.
