“We are very pleased with the outcome of this sale transaction. It was a complex transaction involving multiple parties in multiple countries to deal with. The Oaklins team handled all issues diligently and efficiently. Their contributions are particularly noteworthy given that the process had to be managed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Partnering up with a major US player and its German parent gives us the opportunity to realize the potential of our business in the marketplace.”
