Nearly every one of our projects has an international component, as we usually approach buyers and target companies both in Germany and abroad. Half of our transactions have been concluded with companies in Europe, Asia or the US. Aside from our Phnom Penh office for South East Asia, we cooperate in China and India with E.J. McKay, who maintains offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Mumbai; in the US we work with Janney, an investment bank with offices in New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco, among other places.
