Grant Thornton Baltic's consulting team advised the management of Inspecta Estonia OÜ on the acquisition of Metrex Mõõtekeskus OÜ.

Inspecta Estonia OÜ is a part of the international enterprise Kiwa, which is a leading company in the field of testing, technical inspection, and certification. The business activities of Metrex involve the calibration and inspection of measuring instruments.

In preparation for the acquisition of Metrex, we conducted a thorough pre-sale company audit, encompassing financial, legal, and tax aspects. We identified risks that need to be considered during negotiation and the drafting of the purchase-sale agreement.

Kiwa employs over 10,000 individuals across more than 40 countries. It is ranked among the top 20 global organizations in the testing, technical inspection, and certification (TIC) sector. Kiwa offers services in certification, technical inspection, testing, training, and technical consulting. These services span various market segments, ranging from construction and energy supply to potable water, healthcare, food, animal feed, and agriculture.

Grant Thornton Baltic’s advisory team included Erik Suits, Karin Küttis, Nadežda Mihhailitšenko and Uljana Feldman.
