Parties
“I was very impressed with Oaklins’ proactive approach and thoroughness in the process. From day one they demonstrated a solid understanding of our industry and were excellent in conveying the unique characteristics of our business to potential buyers. This effort put us in the great position of having a considerable number of buyers on short lease, showing strong interest in the company. Just to be clear, we could not have done it ourselves!”
