The winners of the Baltic M&A and Private Equity Awards were announced last night as part of the Baltic M&A and Private Equity Forum 2018.
This year, in addition to three traditional categories, the forum represented an ad hoc category of ‘Baltic Public Offering of the Year 2018’ to mark an exceptionally busy year of public offerings of shares by the Baltic companies.
Three out of four transactions awarded during the Baltic M&A and Private Equity Forum 2018 were advised by COBALT Law Firm:
- Baltic M&A Deal of the Year 2018 - Sale of Magnetic MRO
COBALT advised BaltCap on sale of Magnetic MRO

- Baltic Public Offering of the Year 2018 - Tallinn Port IPO
COBALT advised Port of Tallinn on IPO
- Outbound Deal from the Baltics 2018 - Euroapotheca UAB’s acquisition of Apoteksgruppen in Sweden
The transactions were selected by a committee consisting of market professionals and experts. The committee selected the winning deals according to criteria such as deal value and strategic importance to the Baltic region, complexity, innovation, financing structure, and involvement of regional representatives.
Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you for the busy year!
