Hankook Tire’s acquisition of JAX Tyres


Gilbert + Tobin is advising Korean headquartered Hankook Tire on its acquisition of one of Australia’s leading tyre retailers, JAX Tyres.

By acquiring JAX Tyres, the transaction strengthens Hankook Tire’s global tyre distribution business. The acquisition will also provide Hankook Tire with an opportunity to expand in non-tyre offerings by pursuing initiatives in light repairs and other new product and service segments.

The Gilbert + Tobin team is being led by Corporate Advisory partner David Josselsohn (Picture) and is supported by Tax partner Muhunthan Kanagaratnam and lawyers Shelley Burger (Corporate Advisory), Kylie Hocek (Corporate Advisory) and Chris Merjane (Tax). Lawyers from other specialist practices were also involved.
