The Challenge:

The Client is a 224.7 million GBP profit (June 2007) building and construction materials company with headquarters in the UK looking to expand its operations in Central Eastern Europe, most likely through the acquisition of a local player in the aggregates sector.

The Solution:

FRD Center provided comprehensive market research services which resulted in a detailed market report, market opportunities assessment, in-depth analysis of local players in the Romanian aggregates market, players profiles, identification and selection of potential target-companies, market entry strategies assessment.

The FRD Center target origination and deal origination in Romania have been required and, as follow-up, FRD Center was invited by the Client to deliver also a comprehensive sector presentation to the Board in London.
