TJP ADVISORY & MANAGEMENT SERVICES GMBH AND M&A INTERNATIONAL INC. MEMBERS CREATE OAKLINS, A NEW GLOBAL INVESTMENT BANKING GROUP

Vienna (OTS) - Today, TJP Advisory & Management Services GmbH and members of the worldwide M&A International organization announce the creation of a new global player: Oaklins. As a result, TJP Advisory & Management Services GmbH now becomes Oaklins Austria.

Oaklins will be one of the largest and most experienced global mid-market M&A and corporate finance advisory firms, with a strong industry focus across 14 sectors and 60 offices in all the main financial centers of the world. Through the new international structure, Oaklins is able to advise private shareholders, financial investors and corporate clients on larger and more complex deals, providing better results for our clients.

Oaklins’ industry-specific, cross-border deal teams will leverage the vast experience of 700 M&A professionals worldwide. Local teams will be strengthened with global specialists for every deal assignment. New global IT systems have been rolled out to provide seamless global cooperation and the sharing of sector expertise, market intelligence and valuation trends. 14 dedicated sector research teams will support further growth for Oaklins as a strong global financial advisory firm in the mid-market over the coming years.

Florian von Alten, a Partner at Oaklins Germany and President of Oaklins International adds: “We are very pleased M&A International is taking this important step forward by establishing Oaklins as a strong global firm. Clients nowadays want their financial advisors to be capable of accessing buyers and sellers in every corner of the world. From today, we will bring the close relationships formed through our local offices to the world stage, making Oaklins an integrated independent global M&A advisory firm with a strong focus on industry sector expertise.”

Thomas Jungreithmeir, one of the Oaklins Initiators and Managing Partner of Oaklins Austria – formerly TJP Advisory & Management Services GmbH – echoes this sentiment: “Our Austrian and international clients will hugely benefit from the creation of Oaklins because of our fortified focus on industry sector expertise and our increased global reach. From now on, all our deal teams will be strengthened by global industry experts.”
