Jank Weiler Operenyi, the Austrian member of Deloitte Legal, has advised the Kruger Group, the minority shareholder in soda maker manufacturer Sodapop Austria GmbH, on the acquisition of the remaining shares of the company from BAST Unternehmensbeteiligungs GmbH and ROHE Vertriebsmanagement und BeteiligungsgmbH. Austria's Berger Ettel law firm reportedly advised the sellers.
Jank Weiler Operenyi advised the Kruger Group on its acquisition of a minority stake in Sodapop in June, 2020.
According to Deloitte Legal, "with the takeover of all shares in the Austrian soda maker in March 2021, the Kruger Group is now consolidating its position in this area. The food manufacturer based in Bergisch Gladbach is already the European market leader for instant products such as soluble tea, coffee, and cocoa specialties."
The Jank Weiler Operenyi team consisted of Partners Alexander Operenyi and Stefan Zischka, Counsel Johannes Lutterotti, and Senior Managing Associate Richard Henny.
