RTPR Allen & Overy has advised the Japanese group Asahi Group Holdings, Ltd. on the acquisition of Ursus Brewery, one of the largest beer producers in Romania, in a huge deal in which Asahi group purchased the SAB Miller businesses in the region from Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV.

The deal closed on Friday was announced at the end of last year when the sale purchase agreement was signed.

Allen & Overy is lead adviser to Asahi on the M&A, commercial, antitrust, banking, tax and employment aspects of the agreement with AB InBev. The transaction covers five markets in CEE, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. It is also the largest deal in Asahi’s 127 year history.

RTPR Allen & Overy team involved in this deal was led by Adrian Cazan (Counsel), under Partner’s Mihai Ristici supervision, and comprised a multidisciplinary team of 15 lawyers.


Mihai Ristici declared: “We are happy to have completed another successful huge deal. The Asahi/SAB Miller deal, together with other significant transactions signed at the end of last year, such as the sale of Profi supermarket chain and the acquisition by Allianz Capital Partners of 30% of E.ON Distributie Romania, already recognised as the three largest M&A deals in Romania in 2016, further confirms our position as the leading law firm for M&A in Romania.”

Adrian Cazan commented: “I am happy that, together with our excellent team in Bucharest and our colleagues from the other A&O offices across the CEE, we have successfully closed this deal. It was a complex and multidisciplinary project which involved many resources, offering however great satisfactions to see such high profile project coming to a successful end. I would also like to thank the lawyers from Suciu Popa si Asociatii who, under the supervision of Cleopatra Leahu, assisted the seller.”
