We are thrilled to announce that we acted as the lead legal advisor to Wadi Group Poultry S.A.E and its subsidiaries (“Wadi”), a leading Egyptian Agribusiness, on the investment transaction with Mitsui & Co., Ltd.(“Mitsui”), a global leader in trading and investment group.
This strategic investment aims to propel Wadi’s Agribusiness activities in Egypt, one of Africa’s largest and fastest-growing markets in terms of population. It is a significant step toward enhancing the quality of today's increasingly diverse consumer products.
Our team was led by Ragy Soliman, Managing Partner, Co-Head of M&A and Capital Markets and Dina Sherif, Senior Associate, assisted by Yomna Taha, Managing Associate and Mariam Choukri Fayek, Associate.
We had the pleasure of working alongside our colleagues at Zilla Capital, a leading Egyptian M&A financial advisor. Also, we thank our partners at Hadef & Partners, a UAE-based legal counsel, for their collaborative efforts in reviewing transaction documents from an English law perspective.
Congratulations to the seasoned teams at Clifford Chance LLP and Matouk Bassiouny, who acted as Mitsui's international and local counsel, respectively.
