CzechLink

The CzechLink capital participation project brings together investors who are considering capital entry into a local company with firms that are seeking an investor. The project supports mergers, acquisitions and joint-venture partnerships.

CzechLink is a tool which helps investors to identify potential M&A targets or joint-venture partners. It efficiently matches local companies with investors’ needs and provides investors with business and financial information materials of small, medium-sized and large enterprises in the manufacturing and IT industries that are registered in the CzechLink database. Eligible firms must have at least a five-year history and no prior declaration of bankruptcy, insolvency proceedings or reorganisation.

The project is intended for strategic and financial investors with a declared interest in the Czech capital market who sign a non-disclosure agreement with CzechInvest. After this step, the given investor receives a presentation of the selected company, a so-called prospectus, if the sell-side agrees. If both parties express interest, CzechInvest subsequently organises a meeting. 

CzechLink Prospectus includes:

  • company profile, its ownership structure and legal form
  • quality control
  • product portfolio
  • economic indicators
  • overall economic situation of the company
  • equity offer
  • location of the company and distance from the main traffic junctions
  • labour indicators
  • technology profile
  • top customers
  • main competitors

CzechInvest assists investors in negotiations with selected Czech local targets and provides them with professional help. Employees of the agency, which has offices in all regions of the country, know the domestic industrial environment very well. They can also:

  • match investors with consulting companies that can assist with the due-diligence phase
  • introduce investors to domestic commercial banks that can assist with financing
  • present grant schemes or investment incentives for post-merger expansions

Participation in the CzechLink project is free of charge.
