"The collaboration with Blunaranja was outstanding and all communication with us and the sellers to achieve a lean and comfortable position for all parties was executed perfectly."

Working with Blunaranja Capital has been an overall great experience, especially when it comes to collaboration and results. We worked closely together throughout the whole project and the results we achieved had an incredible impact on our business.

The daily work with Armin and his colleagues has been easy to say the least, the whole Blunaranja team was at our beck and call at all times. Armin was the key figure in all communication with targets and during the negotiations. So, no delegation of key tasks to juniors which was very helpful.

If we were to highlight three main points of the service Blunaranja has provided us with, they would be:

  1. Reliability and availability: In our area of expertise, we encounter day-to-day difficulties that need an immediate, effective response on short notice, and this clearly is the case for Blunaranja.
  2. Language, communication, and culture: to successfully penetrate unknown markets, it is important to count on the support of experts to not only provide good translations, but also understand the country's culture, the specificities of our sector in the country and the business psychology of sellers.
    Based on its deep knowledge of the market in terms of culture and players, Blunaranja has successfully helped us overcome the culture barrier and understand the sector deeply in France and Germany.
    This competence is key to execute cross-border transactions and Blunaranja fully meets this requirement.
  3. Strategy: Blunaranja consulted us not only about the sourcing and execution of deals, but also on the timing, strategic location and long-term plan to build a meaningful project in Germany with very positive growth prospects.

In addition, Armin’s sharp problem solving in tough negotiations was a central asset that helped us to close transactions fast and with an optimum cost-benefit ratio.

All in all, the collaboration with Blunaranja was outstanding and all communication with us and the sellers to achieve a lean and comfortable position for all parties was executed perfectly.

Blunaranja was a vital partner to us and our expansion plans in Germany. Blunaranja’s approach is methodic, adaptable and Armin was willing to provide his profound advice personally throughout the whole process.
