KWM also assisted Wollar Solar Holding Pty Ltd (WSH) on its proposed acquisition of TPC Consolidated Limited (TPC) via scheme of arrangement.

The deal hinges on the approval of TPC shareholders. The scheme is expected to be implemented in the third quarter of the year.

Launched by the Beijing Energy Group (BJEI Australia) in 2021, WSH focuses on the construction and operation of clean energy projects throughout Australia.
