The Transaction

Given the stable growth of Froněk, spol. s r.o. and the Client’s wish for an identification of the Czech leading players in the construction market for a role of potential investors. Patria, after evaluating a larger number of potential investors, has identified several potential investors, who were selected for further negotiations. After confidential negotiation and strategic considerations, limited number of investors were submitted to the due diligence and transaction negotiation phase. The final selection was not only determined by the purchase price, but also by the final transaction structure. Thanks to the mutually functioning chemistry and strong interest of the buyer, a sale has been agreed upon between Froněk spol. s r.o. and IMOS Brno, a.s.

The Result
