Gessel Advises First Private Equity Fund FIZAN on Restructuring of Involvement in Gwarant Grupa Kapitalowa


Gessel has advised First Private Equity Fund FIZAN, managed by Vestor Dom Maklerski S.A., on the restructuring of the fund's financial involvement in Gwarant Grupa Kapitalowa S.A., in Katowice. 

According to Gessel, "as part of the restructuring of debts of over PLN 50 million entitled to the fund in relation to Gwarant Grupa Kapitalowa S.A. and related company Andoria-Mot Sp. z o.o. ... the fund sold part of these debts for an amount of PLN 12.4 million and made a debt conversion by acquiring a minority stake in the company Andoria Mot Sp. z o.o. and shares in Kuznia Jawor S.A."

Gessel has been advising the fund on its involvement in Gwarant Grupa Kapitalowa since 2011, and it reports that "the transaction in question represents the next stage of the disinvestment of the fund from this group of companies."

The Gessel team was led by Partner Malgorzata Badowska, supported by lawyer Karol Sokol and trainee legal advisor Krzysztof Jasinski. The firm also performed legal due diligence of Andoria Mot Sp. z o.o. and Kuznia Jawor S.A., with a team led by Managing Associate Maciej Boryczko.
