  • Together with Rothschild CORPIN acted as the exclusive financial adviser to WALMARK, a.s. and its shareholders (Czech private individuals) in the process of defining new overall ownership strategy of the company. Within this search for new strategy WALMARK has conducted informal discussions with various strategic and financial investors, which led to the partial equity investment in WALMARK by one of the most significant private-equity investors in Central and Eastern Europe, the MEP funds.
  • Partnership between the founding shareholders of WALMARK and MEP is expected to bring WALMARK to the next level of its development by combining entrepreneurial approach of the founding WALMARK shareholders with the skills of the new financial partner – namely new capital, skills in managing and steering large companies and new fresh view on company’s market strategy, with the objective to provide all shareholders an opportunity for an optimal exit in several years time, or opportunity to the partners to acquire changed company from the fellow shareholders.
  • CORPIN played a crucial role in all phases of this project, notably in negotiation of specific terms of the partnership with MEP, in due diligence and in interaction with other investors, which were also interested in a transaction with WALMARK.
