Advising Yeong Chin Machinery on Acquisition of Stake in TRIMILL02/08/22 / News

KSB's team led by Dagmar Dubecká and Ján Béreš advised Yeong Chin Machinery on the acquisition of a majority stake in TRIMILL.

TRIMILL was founded in 2000 and specialises in the development, design, assembly, commissioning, sales and service of machine tools for the machining of moulds and press tools. Yeong Chin Machinery Industries is a Taiwanese company founded in 1954 and specializes in manufacturing machine tools.

Our assistance included comprehensive transactional advice. We also assisted the client in drafting the application for approval of the acquisition as a foreign investment and were the client’s legal counsel in the relevant proceedings – one of the first in the Czech Republic. The system for controlling investments from non-EU countries in strategic assets relevant to the security and internal order of the Czech Republic has been in force since 1 May 2021, and certain foreign investments in Czech assets (including private ones) are thus subject to prior approval by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
