BDO Finland Acquires Consilium Corporate Finance OY

Press Release by BDO

BDO Finland is delighted to announce it has strengthened its corporate finance and transactions services by acquiring Consilium Corporate Finance Oy, a company specialised in corporate and capital financing.

"I would like to warmly welcome the former Consilium partners to BDO,” said Hannu Riipi, Managing Partner of BDO Finland. “Their addition to our firm strengthens our mergers and acquisitions service offering, which is an essential element of our growth strategy in Finland. This expansion means that our firm is gaining leading investment banking experts with a strong reputation across the region for excellence”.

The acquisition brings Pekka Lindholm and Tuomo Alamäki to BDO. Lindholm has over 20 years of experience in investment banking. Alamäki has worked as a Senior Partner at Consilium since 2009, prior to which he worked for Nokia for more than 20 years, supervising divisions such as finance, strategic planning and the development of new business operations.  

“Our clients will continue to receive the local, hands-on service they value, but will now have access to the wider expertise and resources provided by BDO's global network,” adds Pekka Lindholm. “BDO is uniquely positioned in being able to provide exceptional client service to leading mid-market companies throughout Finland”.

Anders Heede, CEO EMEA at BDO, added his congratulations to BDO Finland: “This step further cements BDO’s standing in a key marketplace and will build on the firm’s already impressive performance in recent years. It is a further testament to our commitment to growing our advisory services, and to the network’s credibility”.

With the acquisition of Consilium, a company founded in 2005, BDO now has the status of certified adviser with the First North.
