BBH has advised the Kaprain Group on its acquisition of Mafra Publishing and Synthesia from Agrofert Holding in a package deal.
The Kaprain Group is a Czech Republic-based investment group founded by Karel Prazak.
Mafra Publishing is a Czech media group that publishes print and internet media.
Synthesia is a European manufacturer of chemical products, with a focus on nitrocellulose.
"Thanks to the acquisition of Synthesia, we will significantly strengthen the specialty chemicals market in Europe and become one of the most important players in the region," Prazak said.
Back in May, BBH had also advised the Kaprain Group on its sale of Nej.cz to PPF Group company Cetin (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 8, 2023).
The BBH team included Managing Partner Petr Mlejnek, Partners Tomas Sedlacek and Andrea Adamcova, Senior Associate Adam Necas, and Lawyer Dominik Liska.
BBH did not respond to our inquiry on the matter.
