Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Mid Europa Partners (Mid Europa) on the sale of Bambi, the leading biscuit producer in the countries of former Yugoslavia, to Coca-Cola HBC.
Mid Europa acquired Bambi in 2015 together with Imlek and Knjaz Miloš, the leading regional dairy and natural mineral water companies, respectively, forming the consumer group Moji Brendovi.
"We have advised Mid Europa on the full cycle of its investment in Bambi, from acquisition through to exit," said White & Case partner Ken Barry. "The transaction is the latest in our ongoing relationship with Mid Europa and demonstrates the strength of our capabilities advising on private equity deals in Central & Eastern Europe."
The transaction is subject to customary competition authority clearance and is expected to close in Q2 2019.
The White & Case team in London that advised on the transaction was led by partners Ian Bagshaw and Ken Barry, with support from associates Will Summers and Matthew Chalk.
