The Client for this Buy-Side pre-M&A project was 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 Client was looking for a reliable market research company that was able to provide in-depth market and players analysis, as well as pre-M&A advisory services and target origination in aggregates market in Romania.

The Solution:
