Outstanding performance by Oaklins in European M&A league tables
Our European team’s dedication to delivering true value for their clients has again positioned us as a top-10 Mid-market financial advisor in the 2019 Thomson Reuters chart driven by an impressive European performance across the board.
In 2019 we advised on the sale of Sogelink, a pioneering software and software as a service (SaaS) solutions provider to the building site, infrastructure and property management industry, to Keensight Capital, a leading European growth buy-out firm with the expertise and vision to support Sogelink’s ambitious development strategy.
In exciting transaction designed to capitalize on synergies, our aerospace & defense M&A specialists assisted French aerospace coatings manufacturer Mapaero with its sale to AkzoNobel, a leading global paints and performance coatings company headquartered in the Netherlands.
And in another notable deal, we advised the shareholders of Best Global Logistics and Marinetrans, both logistics service providers, in completing the combined sale to Waterland Private Equity, a leading private equity firm with 8 offices across Europe whose sector-focused approach and industry knowledge helps build exceptional companies.
We are very proud to have advised the shareholders of BGL and Marinetrans in realizing the transaction with Waterland. With a large number of different stakeholders involved, the transaction was quite complex, but with the combined effort of all parties, we have been able to work out a transaction with a satisfactory outcome for all.ARJEN KOSTELIJK, PARTNER, OAKLINS' TEAM IN THE NETHERLANDS
