CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang is pleased to announce that it has advised EBRD on the participation in the acquisition of Żabka, one of Poland’s leading food retailers, with an equity investment of up to €25 million.

Żabka was recently acquired by funds managed by CVC Capital Partners from its previous owner Mid Europa Partners. It is expected that the EBRD investment will support the continued strengthening of corporate governance and setting standards in “green innovation” through environmentally friendly investments.

The CMS team was led by Graham Conlon, Co-Head of International Private Equity of CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang, and senior corporate and M&A associate Tetyana Dovgan, with invaluable support from associate Vitalii Mainarovych.

Graham Conlon commented: “We are very proud to have advised EBRD on yet another of their transactions in the region.”
