15 Oct 2014
27 of the 32 member firms sent 42 delegates to attend the conference to discuss deal opportunities, sector trends, and to network. The conference opened with the traditional M&A cocktail party, a networking event that included top companies & PE firms from Greece to meet and discuss opportunities with Globalscope member firms.
During the conference, Globalscope welcomed three new member firms, all leading M&A advisors in their respective countries:
• Capital Times from Ukraine and Belarus
• Alliance Group Capital from Georgia
• Bluemint Capital from Portugal
Tim Kogan, Director of Corporate Finance at Capital Times, commented “We have been looking to establish a global reach for our Ukrainian projects and got in touch with Globalscope Partners. We were extremely encouraged by the active leadership in the board, and are proud to be a member of Globalscope Partners; a group of M&A specialists with a variety of sector expertise”.
Aieti Kukava, CEO of Alliance Group Capital, commented “We are delighted to become a member of Globalscope Partners and look forward to offering our clients a wide variety of buy and sell M&A opportunities. Georgia achieved robust economic growth between 2003-2012, averaging 6.1 percent annually following structural reforms that stimulated capital inflows and investment. The World Bank expects Georgia to have 6.3 percent economic growth in 2014. Thus, we strongly believe there will be many interesting cross-regional transactions in and from Georgia”.
Pedro van Zeller, Partner at Bluemint Capital, commented “Our firm has been looking for an active group of international M&A advisors to enhance the service we can give to our clients; we are delighted to have found this in Globalscope Partners”.
Michael Moritz, President of Globalscope, commented, “Globalscope is proud of the continuous growth of the network – further steps will follow in the near future”, adding, with regards to the conference in Greece, “We were impressed to see all the opportunities for foreign investors in Greece in an improved economic environment”.
