Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised FFP, a listed company controlled by the Peugeot family Group, on the sale of its 5.9 percent stake in DKSH, a leading Swiss market expansion services group with a focus on Asia.
DKSH's shares are listed on SIX Swiss Exchange and were sold via an institutional private placement with qualified investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding for a total amount of CHF 212 million. The placement was managed by Crédit Suisse, as sole Bookrunner.
FFP acquired a stake in DKSH in 2008 and supported its listing on the Swiss stock market in 2012. The transaction is part of FFP's strategy to support growing companies over extended periods of time, while realising progressive asset rotation and creating value for its shareholders.
The White & Case team in Paris which advised on the transaction was led by partners Thomas Le Vert and Séverin Robillard, and included U.S. partner Max Turner, with support from associates Boris Kreiss and Guillaume Monnier.
