SECTORS IN WHICH WE OPERATE
OUR FIELDS OF EXPERTISE
All Companies in their development and growth process have to start expanding their market reach to other countries in order to produce more advanced know-how, products or services to supply this ever-growing demand generated by Globalization.
To operate internationally it’s necessary to have a global structure, understand the local cultures, the habits, the local language and open commercial and productive units in the target countries to conquer market shares.
BDB can actively promote such projects for the company looking to expand its market reach abroad, that reflects the demands of the company and utilizes the full potential of the client, supporting the company with an investment for the creation of regional commercial networks, identifying local companies and potential industrial and financial partners.
BDB assists its clients in identifying and accessing all financial instruments to support their global expansion and to find international credit, guaranteeing instruments and performance bonds.
Thanks to the experience gained throughout the years thanks to the constant collaboration with major banking institutions, BDB is able to support its clients in the formation of all the necessary documentation to assist the company in the process of expanding to new countries in which it wishes to operate.
BDB’s collaboration with investment funds, private equity firms, and industrial partners interested in acquiring shares and/or developing new-co in various countries of the world is of vital importance.
INVESTMENT SCOUTING (M&A)
Through the experience gained by all of our partners in the M & A operations, as well as the international structuring of investment funds, BDB is able to constantly monitor the markets for acquisition or share capital opportunities for its clients, both under the purely financial aspect and under the industrial strategic point of view.
We believe that M & A operations can be when appropriately sized, a valuable instrument in accelerating the expansion process of companies that are accessing new foreign markets for the first time.
The evaluation of brands in the fashion and luxury field, for example, is done not only in relation to marketing potential but also under the qualitative and know-how aspect, all thanks to the joint effort of technical consultants who are experts in this specific sector.
Of crucial importance for companies that already operate across borders, is the possibility of being able to count on the presence on the spot of professionals able to intervene promptly in case of complications. Our clients benefit from BDB presence in over 20 countries and a network of 14 Associated Partners located all over the world, providing the degree of international presence ideal for efficient, smooth and rapid expansion.

This type of solution represents a very compelling opportunity for the company, as it provides a way to benefit from a professional operating only on foreign development without having to hire him as an internal resource and without having to structure a new company in the country in which the company intends to expand its market.
