CMS has advised the EBRD on its participation in the acquisition of Zabka, one of Poland’s leading food retailers, with an equity investment of up to EUR 25 million.
Zabka was recently acquired by funds managed by CVC Capital Partners from its previous owner Mid Europa Partners. It is expected that the EBRD investment will support the continued strengthening of corporate governance and setting standards in “green innovation” through environmentally friendly investments.
Since the beginning of its operations in Poland in 1991, the EBRD has invested almost EUR 8.5 billion in more than 380 projects in the country.
The CMS team was led by Partner Graham Conlon and Senior Corporate and M&A Associate Tetyana Dovgan, with support from Associate Vitalii Mainarovych.
