Arzinger team has rendered comprehensive legal advice to Zeppelin International AG on executing the squeeze-out in the Ukrainian joint stock company.
The joint stock company joined the Zeppelin Group – one of the largest world renowned plant engineering and construction equipment manufacturers – within the overarching transaction including settlement of the high-profile international dispute. Squeeze-out (a forced buyout of stock owned by minority shareholders in a joint-stock company) has been a critical milestone for a post-transactional integration of the company to the Zeppelin Group.
Squeeze-out transactions are novelties for the Ukrainian law, introduced in 2017 as part of the corporate law reform. Début of squeeze-out and simplifying the reorganization of such enterprises into limited liability companies in Ukraine has bolstered a more efficient and effective management of post-privatization enterprises.
Being part of this project Arzinger team has been meticulously consulted on the squeeze-out structuring-specific issues, has drawn up the necessary papers, as well as acted as a liaison between the banks and the regulator.
The project has been executed by the Senior Associate Alesya Pavlynska and Associate Yana Babych with the lead of Timur Bondaryev, the Arzinger Managing Partner.
