Oaklins’team in Shanghai advised the seller in this transaction. With extensive understanding and deal experience in business services, especially in facility management, the team ran a well-managed and strictly confidential process and optimized valuation with a straight 100% sale. The team negotiated terms with the buyers, coordinated the bidding and negotiation process and ensured a smooth closing and post-transaction integration process.
The transaction was closed during the special time of COVID-19. I am happy to have worked with the Oaklins team. I am impressed with their professionalism, process management, communication and negotiation skills, capability to offer financial and commercial due diligence, as well as their strong network in China’s public and private sectors. They made the transaction happen even without my physical presence in China during the six-month period.Andreas Ermann Former Owner, Chairman and Managing Director, GSN Property Services Co., Ltd.
