Latham & Watkins Advises Fedrigoni on Acquisition of BoingTech

July 3, 2024
Firm represents global paper manufacturer in the transaction.

Latham & Watkins has advised Fedrigoni, a global manufacturer in specialty papers for luxury packaging and other creative applications, self-adhesive labels, graphic media for visual communication, and RFID solutions, on its acquisition of a majority stake in BoingTech, a subsidiary of Shanghai Inlay Link Inc (a NEEQ-listed Chinese holding company) and pioneer in the manufacturing of RFID inlays and tags. As part of the transaction, Shanghai Inlay Link will retain a significant share to ensure a smooth transition and continued business enhancement, while Fedrigoni will have the right to purchase the remaining shares of BoingTech in the future.

The transaction constitutes a “material asset restructuring” under NEEQ rules and is one of the first transactions of this type by an international investor.

The Latham team was led by Hong Kong corporate partner Frank Sun, with Beijing associate Jason Zhao and Hong Kong associate Heidi Lui, and Beijing Foreign Legal Consultant Yuxuan Chen. Advice was also provided on general corporate matters by Milan partner Giorgia Lugli and associate Luca Maranetto.
