Head of M&A
Head of Corporate Development,
"As a global player with various businesses, the search for future partners and / or target firms is a mammoth task. Both the strategies and the screening procedures as such were traditionally very diverse. On the one hand, we are contacted by investment banks and M&A boutiques with business opportunities on a daily basis. On the other hand, hundreds of employees worldwide are constantly putting out their feelers. Coordindating this and establishing a best practice model is clearly not easy.
That is why we put a lot of hope in the systematic, repeatable approach of MADiscover. After all, we don't just want to keep repeating the same thing, we also want to always be a little better. And so far it has worked amazingly well with MADiscover, also and especially in very different search scopes."
Ernst & Young accompanies countless transactions in various industries, and still the key to successful acquisitions is finding the right target. MADiscover uses complementary and promising methods for identifying companies."
"M&A has long been an essential pillar of Huhtamaki's growth strategy. The selection of suitable partners in various countries and markets has always been important, but also very time-consuming and expensive. With MADiscover we can finally quickly and cost-effectively screen several countries at once."
