Allen & Overy has advised Ceska Sporitelna and Ceskoslovenska Obchodni Banka on their financing of Bike Fun International, a European bike producer, based in Koprivnice, in the Czech Republic. PwC Legal advised Bike Fun on the deal.

The overdraft facility of the financing documentation was prepared and negotiated using the euro short-term rate (the €STR, a replacement of the previous EONIA), a new benchmark based on overnight deals published by the European Central Bank as of October 2, 2019.

According to Allen & Overy, “the timing of the transaction and the fact that €STR is a backward-looking rate have resulted in challenges for the transaction, in particular in relation to the method of calculation and the settlement of daily accrued interest as of the end of the month.” The €STR will be used for the overdraft facility by one lender and its use by the other lender will be optional.

The A&O team was led by Counsel Silvie Horackova and Senior Associate Petra Mysakova, supported by Associate Lukas Vondrich and Junior Lawyer David Bujgl.

The PwC Legal team was led by Senior Associate Daniel Pikal and included Managing Associate Vendelin Balog and Junior Associate Pavlina Krausova.
