Kinstellar advises EAG on Cebia acquisition in the Czech Republic

March 2021 – Kinstellar’s Prague office has successfully advised EAG, a Czech-based international investment group focused on the digital transformation of the automotive market, on its acquisition of Cebia, a market leader in verifying the history, origin and authenticity of used cars.

Kinstellar’s involvement included carrying out a legal audit of Cebia, negotiating all transactional documents and assisting the client in negotiating the financial documentation.

The Kinstellar team was led by Zdeněk Kučera (co-head of the firm-wide TMT sector), who received substantial support from Matěj Večeřa. Jakub Šťastný handled the negotiation of financial documentation; Štěpánka Havlíková and Tereza Mašková (Junior Associates) were involved in the legal audit activities, while corporate matters were supervised by partner Jan Juroška.

Commenting on the deal, Zdeněk Kučera pointed out how much the Kinstellar team enjoys working with EAG. “The client comes in with many interesting ideas to shake up the outmoded automotive market, and Cebia will fit perfectly in the client’s portfolio,” he says, adding that, “working with professionals from EAG is always a pleasure”.

Petr Kratochvíl from EAG commented: “We appreciated the strong support from Kinstellar during the whole transaction process. Having a team specialising in IT and IP rights was key for successfully closing such a complex transaction”.
