“Having seen already several similar M&A processes from the past my experience is that they rarely are enjoyable. Against all odds — this process with Clairfield Finland was. The process went exactly according to the original schedule. We had global reach of over 100 buyer candidates, which we downscaled for the 25 best options and met all of them. Iconic global brands having lot of interest on our company. Among the candidates we were able to find perfect business and culture fit, a buyer we wanted to sell our company to. What can a client say when expectations are exceeded, hell yeah! We have nothing but respect for the Clairfield team. They did their part better than we could even imagine.”
