What's new at DZP?
The US SeaChange International Inc. has purchased DCC Labs, a company designing solutions for digital and internet television, including for producers of electronic equipment and telecommunications operators. DZP advised DCC Labs and the company’s owners throughout the transaction, from transaction planning through negotiations and document drafting to closing.
The acquisition of DCC Labs by SeaChange fits perfectly with our more than law philosophy, as we focus not only on ensuring that clients’ transactions are carried out safely in legal terms but also on the results of actions taken by Polish entrepreneurs and specialists increasing their presence on global markets. In this case, DCC Labs’ output will continue to develop at SeaChange under the management of its Polish creators.
DCC Labs was advised by a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers: Piotr Andrzejczak, Przemysław Furmaga, Maciej Ciszkiewicz, Adam Pawlisz and Andrzej Dunikowski (M&A and corporate), Joanna Wierzejska and Grzegorz Sprawka (tax), Dawid Sierżant (IP) and Maciej Żelewski (competition law).
DCC Labs develops television software for platforms such as DVB, OTT and IPTV. It offers consultancy and creates mobile applications and end-to-end solutions. The solutions created by the Polish company were clearly appreciated across the pond in 2015, when SeaChange contracted DCC Labs to develop software for several large European cable network operators.
