BLF Studio Legale, with the partner Roberto Ludergnani and the senior associate Giovanni Ludergnani, has assisted the Mini Family in the sale of La Galvanina S.p.A. to The Riverside Company, a global private equity fund.
La Galvanina S.p.A., an Italian company founded by the Mini Family, produces premium mineral water and organic soft drinks, both under its own brands and private label.
Based in Rimini, La Galvanina’s “Made in Italy” products reach a global clientele in more than 35 countries, whose main markets in 2018 were the United States, Italy and Canada.
The transaction was made through a special purpose entity specifically set up in which some members of the Mini Family reinvested a part of the prize.
BLF Studio Legale handled the M&A aspects of the transaction, including the drafting and negotiation of the share purchase agreement, the reinvestment agreements and the regulation of relations between the shareholders.
