Whilst the Private Equity sector in Turkey now has a good track-record (with several well-established local funds and some successful exits) it still has the potential to develop further. Many exits are in the pipeline as funds look to return capital (and this may develop a secondary market) and well-established funds are also looking to deploy “dry powder” and benefit from excellent global fundraising conditions.
The Akol team has deep expertise in the private equity sector, having acted for most of the major players on many of the highest-profile deals in the market. We have acted for technology VC’s, mid-market local and international players and global private equity giants on acquisitions and exits in Turkey.
We can act at all stages of the private equity lifecycle from funds formation, to majority and minority buy-outs, to secondary transactions, to exits. We also have strong experience in assisting sellers in disposals to private equity funds, due to our ability to understand and communicate the way that such funds think. We also provide competitive ongoing portfolio assistance to be able to support our clients at all stages.
We would emphasize the quality of our due diligence, our coverage of the full spectrum of industry sectors, our efficiency and flexibility when dealing with portfolio issues, and our top-tier strength in drafting and negotiation to ensure that funds win deals and exit cleanly.
