PPP/PFI

PPP / PFI is the core sector from which the Galileo idea and project comes from. Its founding partners have over ten years experience in this sector which give them a deep knowledge of the industrial, economic, financial, and commercial matters. In the PPP/PFI field Galileo plays as a global advisor, able to advise the potential stakeholders in different initiatives and in their single steps (origination, public tender, construction and operation start-up, way out and secondary market). Among its clients there are public administration, financial institutions (banks and/or investment funds) and industrial operators (usually EPC and/or O & M Contractor).

M&A

Galileo’s partners and professionals has developed experience in the M&A sector, based on direct engagement in significant deals for size and/or strategic content, working sometimes as advisors and others as managers/top managers for important foreign and Italian industrial groups. The experience gained by its professionals gives to Galileo the chance of approaching the M&A market with the awareness of being able to provide financial, economic, legal, commercial and strategic support on both sell/buy sides and regarding various markets, with particular interest towards service, infrastructure and consumer market (luxury and retail) sectors.

Restructuring

The long economic crisis afflicting not only our country has brought many companies, particularly small and medium sized businesses, to face the necessity of re-thinking their industrial structures and of re-positioning themselves in the global market. Galileo’s partners have long been working in this field in many sectors with positive results in both Italian and multinational companies. Today, they provide their customers with  a methodological approach, with proven results, to help the companies to face the path going from the analysis of the causes of the firms critical situation, to the development, collaboration and implementation of restructuring and re-launching plans, all the way to solutions of interim management. In addition, thanks to the cooperation with qualified and expert partners, we can offer auxiliary services aiming at transforming “family managed companies” into “managerial companies”, with a special focus on the generational transitions from founders to heirs.

Financing

The worldwide financial crisis created a significant gap between credit demand and offer. The new banking policies have effectively modified the corporate financing market, causing the “famous” credit crunch.. In the above mentioned market, Galileo aims to advise small companies in order to select and develop innovative financing opportunities guaranteed by international non-traditional financial operators.

The attention by the state institutions to the spending review of the local entities (cities, regions etc.), has brought opportunities also in the fields of building-leasing and outsourcing/optimization of their local services always looking to the eco-compatible solutions.
