    Market feasibility study for a large scale investment

    Mondi is a leading global producer in packaging and paper products, employing around 26,000 people across more than 30 countries.

    “We contacted H&H Advisors to function as an external advisor for a strategic investment project. The role of H&H Advisors was to make a global market report of a specific segment. The report should give an overall picture of the developments and future of the market and provide a solid basis for business evaluation. H&H Advisors also reviewed and supported us in building an asset-based CapEx plan, production model including products, fixed and variable costs, ramp-up plan, and KPIs for the first five years of production. Finally, they reviewed the final feasibility study for the evaluated business.

    H&H Advisors conducted the project in a professional and timely manner. We were satisfied with the work done and can imagine using the services also in the future. We can warmly recommend the company’s professional advisory services for industrial manufacturing companies.”
