Strategic acquisition on the plastic pallets production market

29.01.2018

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.

The transaction has given Karton SpA new development opportunities and synergies through technological change and market expansion.

DZP's advice included preparing the tender offer documentation, negotiating and preparing the transaction documentation, and corporate actions, including devising the transaction structure. DZP also advised on tax aspects of the transaction.

Advice on legal aspects was provided by Magdalena Skowrońska and Maciej Zajda from our Capital Markets and Financial Institutions Practice, Robert Niczyporuk, Adam Pawlisz and Andrzej Dunikowski from the Corporate and M&A Practice, and Alfio Mancani from DZP's Italian Desk, while tax aspects were handled by Grzegorz Sprawka from the Tax Practice.
