Marchenko Partners acted for a seller on one of the biggest M&A deals in the Ukrainian techsector for the last year – a multi-million US$ sale of IT business. The target was a group of companies focused on the proprietary EdTech software enjoying high demand in colleges all over the world.
Our lawyers helped the Client with the complex pre-transaction restructuring, negotiated and commented on the English law governed sale and purchase agreement, assisted with preparation of the disclosure letter, and coordinated execution and completion of the deal. Despite the complexity of the transaction (caused, for instance, by the fact that the target included several companies, all in different jurisdictions), we managed to complete it under tight timeframes, on the very eve of the global lockdown that put on hold many other M&A deals.
Marchenko Partners’ team working on the transaction involved Partner Roman Shulyar, Associate Bogdan Burlaka, and Junior Associate Oleksandr Poznyakov.
