“The completion of the Nactis deal took years, from beginning to completion, for many reasons that were mostly out of our control. Oaklins’ team in Italy accompanied us in this process – from the initial contact to closing – with professionalism, patience and many proactive proposals. Without their cooperation, the deal would never have happened.”
“We chose Oaklins to assist us in this project because they are the most experienced corporate finance advisor in the horticulture sector and at the same time have a local and experienced team in Belgium. By operating as one team, they offered us the best of both worlds.”
