Caiado Guerreiro advises on the sale of Lauak Portugal

Caiado Guerreiro has advised Lauak Sarl on the sale of 60% of Lauak Portugal’s capital, its french counterpart.

The transaction was carried out with the support of João Caiado Guerreiro, lawyer and partner, Joana Gomes dos Santos, lawyer and partner in the tax team, Ana Castro Gonçalves, lawyer Neuza Felizardo Carreira and Tomás Melo Ribeiro.

The sale transaction by Ama Lur Enoturismo which until now held 68.97% of the capital of the aeronautical company, was carried out with the support of the portuguese firm. Caiado Guerreiro advised selling 60% of Lauak Portugal’s capital to Lauak Sarl, its french counterpart, which did not hold any shares in the national company.

In this operation, João Caiado Guerreiro highlights the collaboration with the law firm in France, in work performed in two jurisdictions, where Caiado Guerreiro’s multidisciplinary team “demonstrated all its knowledge in areas such as M&A and tax, and the long experience in representing international investors”, he explains.

Founded in 1975 under Eskulanak by its current co-manager, Jean-Marc Charritton, the Lauak Group started by supplying sheet metal components to Dassault Aviation. Today it is a leading manufacturer-supplier of primary components, sub-assemblies and assemblies for the aircraft industry, particularly for Airbus and Dassault.

The group, with factories in France, Portugal, Canada and Mexico, is today managed by Mikel Charritton and Jean-Marc Charritton. In Portugal, the company was created and managed by Armando Gomes, who presented a business proposal in our country and who, with his team, built Lauak Portugal which today employs around 700 workers in the Setúbal and Grândola factories. The business volume amounts to 50 million euros in exports.
