About us

Sigma Catalyst Partners is a strategic advisory boutique, specialized in M&A, infrastructure finance and distressed assets investments in Greece and Eastern Europe.

  • Special situations (buy-side):
    We assist investors seeking opportunities in NPL portfolios, stand-alone asset sales and corporate workouts. 

    Depending on each case, we may work as exclusive deal brokers, advisors or principals and add value by contributing local market knowledge in identifying and developing transactions tailored to the objectives of our partners or clients.  We mainly seek to source and negotiate proprietary deals through our network, while we also provide access and support investors in all stages of auction processes.

    We also specialize in forming partnerships and exploit synergies between investors and local loan servicing companies. 

  • M&A advisory (sell-side):
    We assist Greek companies in structuring and negotiating M&A transactions with international strategic or fund investors. We support all stages of project execution from initial valuation discussions to VDR setup, due diligence coordination and SPA negotiations.

  • Waste Management project finance:
    On the project finance area, we assist bidding consortia in municipal solid waste (MSW) management projects, where we provide PPP/PFI advisory and assist in tender/bid process, financing and business development.  We may also selectively participate in private energy-from-waste (EfW) and organic waste projects as project partners and co-developers.

Commercial real estate, hospitality, renewable infrastructure and food & agri are preferred sectors in our home market. We also have access to leasing and banking assets in the Balkan region. 

The team is based in Athens, however we are able to source or assist in regional project execution with Greek corporate sponsors or sellers (SE Europe) in our fields of expertise.
