Emmanuel Aubourg, President of Snetor Group, said: “Oaklins’ team in Italy has proved to be professional and pragmatic, with a deal-making approach. They have driven both parties through a smooth negotiation and their final result-oriented attitude was beneficial to the completion of the acquisition. We appreciated their support in this cross-border transaction.”
