Sayenko Kharenko advises AB InBev Efes B.V. on mandatory tender offer and sell-out procedures with respect to SUN InBev Ukraine

Sayenko Kharenko has acted as Ukrainian legal counsel to AB InBev Efes B.V. with respect to acquisition of shares of PJSC “SUN InBev Ukraine” from minority shareholders under the new procedures for mandatory tender offer (the MTO) and sell-out recently introduced to Ukrainian law.

The new MTO and sell-out procedures allow minority shareholders of a joint-stock company to sell their shares and exit the company in response to changes in the controlling shareholder. Both the MTO and sell-out procedures were triggered by the merger of businesses of Anheuser-Busch InBev S.A./N.V. and Anadolu Efes Biracilik ve Malt Sanayii AS, which was successfully completed in March 2018.

Sayenko Kharenko partner Oleksandr Nikolaichyk comments: “Implementation of mandatory tender offers and sell-outs requires professional assistance. Otherwise, it may become quite stressful for clients and result in significant pressure on legal and other support functions within the client’s operations. We are happy to assist AB InBev Efes B.V. with the MTO, a process where potentially 1821 minority shareholders could have been involved."

Sayenko Kharenko rendered full-scope support of the entire MTO and sell-out process, including preparing all necessary documents, negotiating agreements with securities traders and other stakeholders, communicating with minority shareholders and the National Securities and Stock Market Commission, and assisting with execution and completion of share purchase agreements with each minority shareholder.

Sayenko Kharenko’s team was led by counsel Dmytro Korbut with support from associate Ilhar Hakhramanov and junior associate Mykola Lykhoglyad under the general supervision of partner Oleksandr Nikolaichyk.
