Kinstellar’s Sofia antitrust team has advised the Linxens Group, a global leader in the design and manufacture of smart card microconnectors, inlays and led light sources, on the merger filing and approval by the Bulgarian Commission on Protection of Competition of its acquisition of the SIT Division of the Smartrac Group, and on the antitrust aspects of the implementation of the deal. The authority’s approval cleared the way to closing a transaction that would combine Linxen’s and SMARTRAC’s businesses.

The Kinstellar team was lead by Dessislava Fessenko, of counsel, supported by Kamen Chanov, junior associate.
