Voice of a client
Working with Blunaranja Capital was a great experience overall, especially in terms of the way we worked together and the results. We worked closely together throughout the project and the results we achieved have had an incredible impact on our business.
Working with Armin and his colleagues on a day to day basis was very easy, the whole Blunaranja team were available to give us advice and support more or less 24 hours a day. Armin was the key figure in all communications with the targets and during negotiations. He did not delegate any important tasks, which helped us a lot.
If we had to highlight the three most important aspects of Blunaranja’s services, they would be as follows:
- Reliability and availability: in our business there are daily challenges that require an immediate and effective solution, Blunaranja always provides this.
- Language, communication and culture: in order to successfully enter new markets, it is important to be able to count on the support of experts who not only provide translations, but also understand the specific culture of the country, the peculiarities of our sector and the business attitudes of the vendors. Based on their in-depth knowledge of the market in terms of culture and players, Blunaranja has successfully helped us to overcome cultural barriers and understand the sector in Germany and France. This expertise is key to executing cross border transactions and Blunaranja delivers perfectly.
- Strategy: Blunaranja advised us not only on the sourcing and execution of the deal, but also on timing, strategic locations and long term plans to build meaningful projects with great growth potential in Germany.
In addition, Armin’s great problem-solving skills in difficult negotiations led to the deals being closed quickly and achieving an optimal cost-benefit ratio.
All in all, Blunaranja has been excellent to work with and all discussions with us and the vendors have been perfectly conducted to put all parties in a comfortable position.
Blunaranja was an essential partner for us and our expansion plans in Germany. Blunaranja’s approach is methodical, adaptable and Armin was willing to share his in-depth knowledge with us throughout the process.
