CMS suc­cess­fully ad­vises on the pur­chase of Fadata
CMS has suc­cess­fully ad­vised the River­side Com­pany - a glob­al private equity firm - on the pur­chase of ma­jor­ity in­terest in Fadata.Fadata is a lead­ing IT com­pany provid­ing soft­ware solu­tions to the glob­al in­sur­ance in­dustry. Fadata's flag­ship product, end-to-end policy ad­min­is­tra­tion sys­tem (IN­SIS), is top rated in Gart­ner­'s re­views.The agree­ment to ac­quire ma­jor­ity stake in Fadata was made by River­side col­lect­ively with Charles Taylor plc, a pub­lic com­pany quoted on the Lon­don Stock Ex­change. The es­tab­lished joint ven­ture between Charles Taylor, River­side and the man­age­ment of Fadata is aimed to ac­cel­er­ate fur­ther growth in the glob­al tech­no­logy mar­ket both of Fadata and all the parties in­volved.“At­tract­ing a glob­al in­vestor will al­low Fadata to fur­ther strengthen its po­s­i­tion as a glob­al pro­vider of IT solu­tions to the in­sur­ance sec­tor. We are happy to see a com­pany from our re­gion suc­ceed in ex­pand­ing so vastly in so very dif­fer­ent mar­kets” says Marek Sawicki, a part­ner at CMS’s Warsaw Of­fice.“It is also an ex­ample of how leg­al ad­vice can cross bound­ar­ies between jur­is­dic­tions – in this case, a trans­ac­tion in­volving glob­al play­ers in the Bul­gari­an mar­ket was handled by a team of Pol­ish law­yers. Know­ledge of CEE mar­kets has en­abled us to fol­low the cli­ent to oth­er jur­is­dic­tions in the re­gion.”Today Fadata - headquartered in Bul­garia - provides glob­al dis­tri­bu­tion sys­tem and sup­ports sub­si­di­ar­ies as well as part­ner­s' net­work in more than 30 coun­tries. The com­pany’s foot­print in­cludes UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Bel­gi­um, Nor­dics, Czech Re­pub­lic, Es­to­nia, Ethiopia, Greece, Hun­gary, Italy, Ja­pan, Kaza­kh­stan, Kosovo, Mace­do­nia, Ro­mania, Rus­sia, Ser­bia, Croa­tia, Slov­e­nia, Bos­nia, Montenegro, Po­land, Por­tugal, Spain, Tur­key, UK, Rus­sia, Ukraine, Ar­gen­tina, Columbia and the USA. This net­work suc­cess­fully op­er­ates in coun­tries across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Amer­ica.In this trans­ac­tion, the River­side Com­pany was ad­vised by CMS’s in Warsaw and Sofia: Marek Sawicki, a part­ner co-head­ing the CMS Cor­por­ate De­part­ment in Warsaw, ac­com­pan­ied by Warsaw team con­sist­ing of Jak­ub Mar­cinkowski (part­ner) and To­masz Wa­ligór­ski (as­so­ci­ate) in co­oper­a­tion with Atanas Bangachev (part­ner), Al­ex­an­der Ran­gelov (as­so­ci­ate) and Zor­nitsa Geor­gieva (as­so­ci­ate) from Bul­gari­an of­fice of CMS.
