Nordzucker AG enters into acquisition agreement regarding Danisco Sugar A/S

July 2008

Mannheimer Swartling has advised Nordzucker AG in Sweden in connection with its acquisition of Danisco Sugar A/S (enterprise value: DKK 5.6 billion).

Nordzucker AG, which is Europe's second largest sugar producer, has thus increased its European market share to approximately 16 per cent and expanded its geographical market with the addition of a major region. The transaction is conditional upon merger clearance from the relevant competition authorities and upon the shareholders of Danisco A/S granting the board of directors authority to complete the transaction at the general meeting to be held on 20 August 2008.

Hans Petersson was the partner responsible for the transaction. Jenny Svensson and Hans Abrahamsson acted as project managers. Yvonne Ivarsson and Anna Duvander (employment and pensions), Bo Hansson and Therese Ring (environmental), Martin Nilsson (tax) and Zoran Stambolovski (financing) were also involved in the transaction.

Mannheimer Swartling is the leading business law firm in the Nordic region. The firm works with many of Sweden’s, and the world’s, leading major and mid-sized companies and organisations. A common feature for the firm’s clients is that law plays a vital role in their business success.
