Our assistance included target's legal due diligence, drafting and negotiating share purchase, shareholder's agreement with previous shareholders and managers of the Company, assistance in obtaining merger and national security clearances, as well as other transaction matters.

Hamilton Poland is the Poland’s second-largest provider of independent inspection and analytical services, which is backed by the private equity firm Enterprise Investors. By the transaction, Hamilton Poland expanded its activity sphere in Lithuania adding cargo inspection services in the seaports in Lithuania, Latvia and Kaliningrad region to provision of laboratory services.

In the first stage Hamilton Poland acquired 70% of Sekargas and kompanija shares, however the agreement was signed for acquisition of entire 100% in the following years. The transaction stands out for complex transaction structure, especially due to acquisition of share packages in several stages, complex governance structure and securing shareholders' interests in future acquisition.
