Corporate Finance Partners Group expands

Corporate Finance Partners Group expands:
Central and Eastern Europe M&A advisory company COM Partners becomes part of the Corporate Finance Partners Group

Frankfurt am Main/ Vienna/ Budapest, 20th October 2008: COM Partners, the financial advisory company specialized in providing corporate finance advice in midmarket transactions for companies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), announces that it will operate with immediate effect as Corporate Finance Partners Unternehmensberatungs GmbH (Vienna) and Corporate Finance Partners Gazdasági Tanácsadó Kft. (Budapest). With this partnership CFP continues its expansion into CEE after its Berlin entity CFP MidCap recently opened an office in Tallinn (Estonia).

The aim of the integration into the international network of the CFP group is to work together more closely in the areas of business origination, transaction execution, and research as well as in PR and marketing. The stronger ties will help both entities to capitalize on sector and knowledge related synergies on an international level.

COM Partners was founded in Vienna by Berend Yntema and Kai-Peter Burger in 1999. In 2000, Oliver Nemes opened the COM Partners office in Budapest. COM Partners has successfully completed 34 domestic and cross-border M&A transactions with a volume of nearly EUR 800 million. The partners have an in-depth knowledge of the economy in the region, as well as a cultural understanding of CEE countries. Recent transactions have involved companies from Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland and Romania.

Typical company assignments include buy side advisory to international groups that aim to acquire companies in the CEE region, and sell side advisory and capital raising services to local CEE companies seeking international strategic and financial partners.

Berend Yntema explains the motives for the integration into the CFP group: 'We are excited to team up with Corporate Finance Partners allowing us to combine our strong local knowledge in Central and Eastern Europe with a leading investment boutique for mid-sized transactions. By joining the CFP network, we are able to increase resources, deal flow and provide our clients in Central and Eastern Europe with enhanced access to Western European and US financial and strategic investors”.

Andreas Thümmler, founder and owner of Corporate Finance Partners CFP Beratungs-GmbH, says: 'The economies in Central and Eastern Europe will continue to be the fastest growing markets in Europe. With our offices in Vienna and Budapest we are now able to accompany our clients in their expansion into this region'

Corporate Finance Partners provides Corporate Finance advisory services with focus on Mergers & Acquisitions and Private Equity/ Venture Capital Placements for small and mid-sized enterprises (SME’s). Geographically, CFP is focused on Europe and North America.

Corporate Finance Partners was founded in 1998. The offices in Frankfurt/ Main and Miami focus on transactions in the telecom, media, Internet and IT/ Software sector. CFP Midcap with offices in Berlin and Tallinn advises in Industry and Restructuring transactions. CFP BioConnect in Frankfurt/ Main targets life sciences and pharma transactions. CFP Vienna and CFP Budapest focus on transactions in the Central and Eastern European region.

The Corporate Finance Partners group is a focused M&A boutique with 11 managing directors and partners, supported by 40 investment banking professionals.
