Leaf successfully assisted Tesca Group in acquiring a Chinese automotive component manufacturer in China

Leaf provided expert guidance in China to Tesca Group in its successful acquisition closed in July 2022 of Windsor Machine, a Chinese designer and manufacturer specializing in custom head restraints and armrests for the automotive industry. Led by Shanghai-based Partner Peggy Wu, Senior Partner Bruno Grangier and Associate Lin Mengqi, Leaf facilitated the transaction process, from legal due diligence to post-closing matters, strengthening Tesca’s presence in the automotive component market in several countries including China.

Leaf collaborated closely with Tesca’s team and their international attorney, ensuring a thorough legal evaluation of the transaction. This involved conducting on-site interviews, performing legal due diligence, helping to structure the acquisition, reviewing the transaction-related documentation, securing the inventory process. Furthermore, Leaf has followed-up the closing process by assisting with the necessary filings with the authorities in the People’s Republic of China.

Partner Peggy Wu expressed satisfaction with Leaf’s pivotal role, stating, “We are pleased to have advised Tesca Group in this important acquisition during Covid time in China. By acquiring the Chinese operations of this esteemed manufacturer, Tesca solidifies its position as a leading player in the automotive component market. Our team at Leaf worked closely with Tesca and their international attorney, delivering strategic legal counsel for a seamless acquisition process despite the constraints due to Covid at that time.”
