Global companies with sustainable business practices and a solid international presence, such as Kuhn Group, are continuing to explore new strategic markets in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), by including the Romanian market into their regional portfolio, despite the current geopolitical and economical context. The Austrian Kuhn Group, one of the most dynamic players leading the area of construction machinery, was recently assisted by Rödl & Partner’s consultants in the acquisition of MARCOM RMC’94 SRL, a company with Romanian capital.
MARCOM RMC’94 SRL is one of most important distributors in the field of construction and industrial equipment operating on the Romanian market.
The transaction was as an opportunity for Kuhn Group to consolidate its portfolio and access new emerging markets, with growth potential, like Romania.
Rödl & Partner’s M&A team, with long-standing expertise in providing integrated transaction assistance to national and international market leaders, effectively facilitated this successfully closed deal, thus contributing to Kuhn Group’s development and future growth.
Rödl & Partner’s assignment included legal assistance on all stages of the acquisition process – due diligence, negotiation of transaction documents, closing – as well as tax and financial assistance on the due diligence process. Bogdan Frățilă (Romanian Country Managing Partner) coordinated the multidisciplinary team of lawyers, tax consultants and financial advisors, which included Ioan Radu (Associate Partner, Co-Head Legal), Andreea Stănică (Associate Partner, Head of Tax) and Cătălin Ghiță (Associate Partner, Head of Audit). The negotiation of the transaction documents was closely assisted by Bogdan Frățilă and Ioan Radu.
“I am delighted that we had the opportunity to assist Kuhn Group within this M&A transaction, we would like to thank them for this mandate and to wish them success with their development plans in Romania.
It was indeed a complex M&A project, but the excellent cooperation between the parties involved, as well as the dedicated assistance of our consultants, have led to this success. We will continue to advise Kuhn Group in the post-acquisition and integration phase and we are happy to provide them with our entire support for their investment plans in Romania.
This represents a new achievement for our experienced M&A team, who started the year 2022 at full strength”, declared Bogdan Frățilă (Country Managing Partner).
