What's new at DZP?
DZP has advised the Italian company Karton SpA, a leading European producer of plastic and box pallets, on the acquisition of a majority stake in Gekoplast S.A., a leading Polish producer of polypropylene sheets.
The transaction took the form of a tender offer for Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed shares in Gekoplast announced by Sacellum sp. z o.o., a subsidiary of Karton SpA.
