The first stage of an external growth project in Central and Eastern Europe and in the CIS consists of identifying the companies that fit in with your development project.
With the help of our multicultural team’s European experience, market knowledge, relationship management and professionalism. Europe Partner will optimise the identification process of target companies, finding you the most suitable business partners.
Our market analysis will identify all suitable targets including companies which are not officially “on the market” but may be contacted by Europe Partner on preferential terms.
In particular, the screening process may involve reviewing your goals by:
Defining the strategic agenda and target selection criteria,
Target examination and analysis,
Analysing the market, competition, and sectoral trends.
After the initial target identification process, we will contact at the CEO level, the selected companies in a confidential, attentive and direct manner in order to evaluate their potential willingness to sell a part or totality of their capital :
Direct contact, providing total confidentiality of your targets
