Growth and opportunities in unexpected places
Our private equity specialist, Frank de Hek, shares key industry knowledge from some of Oaklins’ sector experts in this quarterly publication. Currently, our 800 regional and sector-specific advisors are collaborating on over 500 active M&A mandates, working across borders to provide the leading private equity funds with tremendous deal flow and ensuring that local expertise reaches its global potential.
In this newsletter we explain how Best Version Media’s (BVM) publications turned the traditional magazine business model on its head, attracting strong attention from both strategic and private equity buyers. Winning bidder Bertram Capital tells us why the unique capabilities it brought to the table will create even more growth opportunities. We also look at three compelling reasons to cultivate an interest in the still-fragmented agriculture sector.
“With more competition for private equity deals than ever before, firms need trusted advisors who have relationships with the most strategic targets and buyers for their portfolio companies. At Oaklins, we have 800 mid-market M&A professionals in every key global financial center, giving our clients true industry- and region-specific expertise, an extensive C-level contact network and in-depth knowledge of M&A opportunities. As you will see from this newsletter, our competitive advantage — the ability to deliver significant, high-quality, sector-specific deal flow — is also our clients’ competitive advantage.”
