JŠK provided legal advisory services to investment fund BHS Private Equity Fund in the expansion of its portfolio by engineering company Boco Pardubice Machines.
BHS Private Equity Fund brings together the funds of individual Czech and Slovak investors, who invest mainly in the form of growth capital in Czech and Slovak companies. The investment in Boco Pardubice Machines is the fund's fourth acquisition.
Boco Pardubice Machines is an engineering company which specialises in technology for the processing and moulding of rubber and plastics, in which it is one of the world's leading companies. The company has more than 25 years of experience and know-how combining the fields of engineering, physics and chemistry.
"We especially value the ability of Boco Pardubice Machines to develop new technologies, produce high-quality products and constantly innovate," said Luděk Palata, a partner of BHS Private Equity Fund. "Thanks to this the company has been a leader in its field for many years. Our aim is to provide even more robust support for these processes, to expand the product portfolio and significantly increase exports."
The JŠK team was led by partner Tomáš Doležil in cooperation with senior associates Michal Jendželovský and Martina Bacíková and junior associates Michaela Krajíčková, Ivana Taškárová and Lenka Petráková.
"Due to the reinvestment of one of the sellers and the regulated nature of the buyer, it was structurally a rather complex transaction," Mr Doležil said. "The extent of the documentation was commensurate with a much larger project. We are delighted to have been able to assist BHS Private Equity Fund with its latest Czech – and we believe successful – investment."
Tax advisory was provided by ASB Prague under the leadership of Jana Pytelková Svobodová.
