The Deal

Lincoln International approached both financial and strategic potential buyers, creating significant interest in TES Vsetín amidst the challenging period of the deteriorating economic environment, increasing energy and raw material prices and disruptions in supply chains. TES Vsetín was ultimately sold to Genesis Capital and Avallon – private equity (PE) funds based in the Czech Republic and Poland, respectively, that are investing in the middle market space in Central and Eastern Europe.

Witold Szymanski, Managing Director and Head of Austria and CEE at Lincoln, commented, “We are proud to have been able to deliver a successful transaction for the seller as well as the company and its shareholders in a challenging environment.”
