Hawesko Group: Investment in the Czech Republic expands international activities


 

Hamburg, 19 June 2022. Hawesko Holding AG is to acquire a majority interest in the Czech premium wine trading company Global Wines & Spirits s.r.o., based in Prague, with effect from 1 July 2022.

 

With sales of € 22 million, Global Wines & Spirits s.r.o. is one of the leading distribution and omnichannel wine trading companies in the Czech Republic. In addition to a strong B2B business, Global Wines & Spirits s.r.o. has ten branches and an e-commerce trade.

 

The Hawesko Group has held a minority interest in the company for many years and has now taken over the shares from Czech co-shareholder Unimex Group on 01 July 2022, thereby increasing its stake to 80 percent. Long-time co-shareholder and managing director Tomas Otta is increasing his share to 20 per cent in the course of the transaction and will continue to manage and develop the company as managing partner.

 

"Global Wines & Spirits is a company we have known and trusted for many years, very profitable and with growth opportunities. The acquisition is not only an investment in the course of the planned further internationalisation of our group, but rather also a step into the developing Eastern European wine market" says the Chairman of the Board of Management of Hawesko-Holding AG, Thorsten Hermelink. "We are delighted to have a reliable partner at our side in Mr Tomas Otta as a long-standing partner and managing director of Global Wines & Spirits."
