We know what works
Our experience in orchestrating deals between large corporations and growth companies spans over seven years. We see how lack of mutual values, poor expectation management, and incompatible ways of working are some of the most common aspects where otherwise sound and profitable partnerships and acquisitions go wrong. We have developed a holistic process for identifying these pitfalls in the lead-up to a deal and take pride in understanding both sides of an acquisition.

"The media industry has been struggling for years" sounds like a quote from ‘Captain Obvious’ — but while it may be common knowledge, potential solutions to the problem can be more obscure and unusual. That was definitely the case in the work that we conducted for one of Finland’s oldest publishing houses, A-lehdet.
