Schoenherr advised Twisto FinCo s.r.o. and Twisto payments a.s. on debt (re)financings with an approximate quantum of EUR 25m, comprising a senior stream provided by J&T Banka (approx. EUR 17.3m) and a mezzanine stream provided jointly by Orbit Capital and Growth Finance (approx. EUR 7.7m). The firm provided comprehensive legal advice to Twisto Payments a.s., including assistance with the structuring of the transaction and transaction documentation. This is the largest debt financing the Twisto group has received.
"We are delighted to have assisted the client on this project," said Jiří Marek, an attorney at Schoenherr's Prague office. "We believe this is just another example of Schoenherr's strong position on the FinTech legal market in the Czech Republic."
