act legal Poland advises Strabag in the take over of Caverion

On February 28, 2019, act Poland helped a Strabag Group company acquire Caverion`s business in Poland.

Strabag PFS Austria GmbH (member of Strabag Group) (www.strabag-pfs.at/) signed an agreement to purchase 100% shares in Caverion Polska Sp. z o.o. (https://www.caverion.com/). The previous owner, Caverion Oyj (Finland), decided to withdraw from the Polish market. The company’s operations were focused on technical facility management.

Caverion Polska, established in 1993, had a workforce of 170. Its 2017 turnover was approx. EUR 12m, with most generated by technical facility management (and the rest by industrial installations).

The transaction value has not been disclosed.

act Poland (BSWW) was advising Strabag Group throughout the process of acquisition of Caverion Polska’s shares. The scope of consulting services included a due diligence review of the company, preparation of transaction documents, support in negotiations and representation in anti-trust clearance procedures before the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.

The project team was led by Marek Wojnar (attorney-at-law, Managing Partner). He was supported by Marta Kosiedowska (legal counsel, Partner) and Katarzyna Góra (trainee attorney-at-law, Associate).

“We are happy to win yet again the trust of Strabag Group, market leader that stands for top quality. The Client clearly appreciates our knowledge, skills and experience in M&A transactions, especially with respect to extension of business operations in Poland, which is a highly sensitive and challenging area,” says Marek Wojnar.
