I was particularly impressed by NORD’s creativeness and support during the transaction“, says Mikkel Berthelsen, Chief Legal Officer at Obton A/S.

Andreas Duckert, Chief Finance Officer at Obton A/S adds “that it has been a true pleasure to work with NORD on the deals and he is convinced that more acquisition financings will follow from the partnership in the not so distant future, as both parties are very active in the markets and are looking for more deals to be made”.
