Oaklins announced as the Baltic M&A Financial Adviser of the Year

Mergermarket, the global leader in M&A intelligence, has recognized Oaklins as the Baltic M&A Financial Adviser of the Year in its annual Mergermarket's European M&A Awards 2020. This award recognises excellence in M&A advisory during an incredibly volatile year for dealmakers.

We are proud that Mergermarket has recognised that over the year marked by lockdowns and market uncertainty, Oaklins Baltics has closed several significant transactions, including the sale of MediCa, currently the largest closed transaction in Lithuania in 2020, and Coffee Adress' acquisition of Kafe Serviss in Latvia.

In the MediCa transaction, we continued our active role in the ongoing private healthcare consolidation in the Baltics. The sales process, which ran from January to August, including a full lockdown period in the country, attracted investor interest not seen in local tenders for quite a while. MediCa was sold to Latvian Repharm after an extremely intense transaction planning, management and negotiation effort by the Oaklins team, which was a key success factor in this landmark deal of 2020, marking the formation of the largest Baltic private healthcare group.

Oaklins Baltics has also been a trusted adviser and counterparty to regional private equity houses and support to Baltic companies in cross-border transactions. In 2020 we pursued a buy-and-build strategy for the Baltic leading coffee vending services operator (Coffee Address backed by BaltCap), facilitated entry into the leading Baltic & Nordic signage manufacturer (Orion’s investment to Admen), intensely negotiated successful exit from the largest Lithuanian temperature-controlled logistics company (NNL, acquired by management and sponsored by Orion), and supported a Lithuanian company making an acqusition in Portugal (InHouse Finance acquired a software developer). The consistent choice by local professional investors and entrepreneurs to work with Oaklins is an excellent endorsement of our continued effort to deliver the highest standard of M&A advice to the Baltic market.
