The Client already had assets across several steps of value chain and was considering further vertical integration. Currently, the targeted sector is highly fragmented, presenting a consolidation opportunity. Yet the sector has limited transparency, thus making understanding an accurate picture of the sector and assessing opportunities for operational improvements extremely challenging.
