Caper is the first Croatian advisory boutique focused on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the mid-market segment.Caper has been engaged in this type of financial advisory since it was founded in 2005. In the past 12 years, Caper has advised 50 clients in transactions worth more than EUR 800 million. Keeping a low number of clients averaging 5 per year is one of the cornerstones of Caper's business model, which is based on a dedicated support to every client.
As of late 2014, Caper has been a member of Oaklins – world's most experienced mid-market M&A advisor. Membership in Oaklins allows Caper to improve the quality and comprehensiveness of service it provides to its clients. From now on, our clients will have the opportunity to benefit from support of an entire network of advisers with broad experience in relevant industries and transactions, local knowledge about foreign markets and direct access to key decision-makers in those markets.
Although the focus of our business is on M&A, to some of its selected clients Caper also provides strategic advisory services and advisory in business restructuring and reorganizing. We base our services on modern know-how and practical experiences.
In 55% of closed M&A transactions to date, Caper acted as a sell-side advisor, whereas it was positioned on the buy-side in the remaining 45%. Of all the transactions, 60% were cross-border, while 40% were domestic. Our in-depth knowledge of the Croatian business is a guarantee to international partners that Caper's advice will help them adjust their plans in accordance with the specificities of the local market and business environment so that they stand the best chance of succeeding.
