The team had a strong background in international business regarding the industry and the markets of Russia and Eastern Europe.
The feasibility study offered the bank a clear and precise picture of the target company based on which the bank could do its funding decision. The board of directors and the management of the target company thanked of the valuable knowledge they can concretely utilize in the execution and further development of the new investment.
