Austrian based firm, Haka Küchen’s acquisition of the Mondsee location from Villeroy & Boch, overseen by Olaf Haelke, Senior Director of the Non-Ceramics division, and an in-house lawyer Hoffmann, was a calculated move towards growth and production expansion. For legal counsel, Villeroy & Boch turned to the expertise of the Salzburg-based law firm Pressl Endl Heinrich Bamberger (PEHB). Within the firm, the transaction was managed by the cooperation partner Haslauer, who was brought on board through a personal recommendation.
PricewaterhouseCoopers provided their proficiency in handling the tax aspects of the deal, ensuring a smooth financial transition. Additionally, Dr. Roland Schlager from 2i-International, with a presence in both Munich and Salzburg, contributed as the M&A advisor, bringing valuable merger and acquisition insights to the table. This collaborative effort contributed to the strategic expansion of Haka Küchen as it strengthens its position in the Austrian market.
