IKEI’s involvement in these kinds of operations creates tangible and additional value for the client, due to the following key aspects of our approach:

Understanding and focus of the operations.
Providing a strategic business vision (not only financial) and advice with a multidisciplinary approach (corporate, commercial and tax).

Access to information about business and transactions.
Through our provider of corporate and financial information, IKEI has access to the data of 164.4 million companies from over 100 countries and 584,000 transaction completed and/or announced in the last 5 years. This allows us to choose a suitable approach to operations (profiling the buyers, identifying target companies and investors, market trends, transaction prices etc.).

International presence.
Through our partners, coordinated in the ANTEA Alliance of independent firms (over 65 countries, more than 200 offices, 3,200 professionals), we are able to provide local support for operations, access direct sources of information and exchange orders (deal flows), thus increasing the transaction options. 

Proven experience.
With over 50 corporate operations managed in the last 10 years.

The above aspects, coupled with our commitment and the methods that we employ in operations – customised search for the best alternatives, simultaneous management of operations, direct negotiations, comprehensive process management etc. – enables IKEI to optimise the transaction conditions for our clients, thus minimising the costs associated with the transaction.

This has made IKEI a key player in the middle market operations segment.
