Acquired By

Brise Group / CEE Equity Partners Ltd

Brise Group has signed an agreement with CEE Equity Partners Ltd for the development of the First Open Access Agriculture Infrastructure Platform in Romania. The fund will invest in modernizing and developing 15 grain silos belonging to Brise Group, which were transferred into a purposely structured Romanian company. Following the transaction, Brise Group will focus on its other services: grain procurement, trading and inputs distribution.

Brise Group is one of the largest and most diversified players in the cereal trading sector, offering a wide range of products and services, including cereal and inputs trading, production, storage capacity, auto and naval transportation, financing, retail and inputs distribution, and quality assurance. The firm has a solid structure created by a group of companies 100% owned by private Romanian shareholders.

CEE Equity Partners is the investment advisor for two China-CEE Funds with committed funds of over US$1.2 billion. The funds were established by China Exim Bank in partnership with other institutional investors from the CEE region to capitalize on investment opportunities in CEE countries. The objective of the funds is to identify and partner with dynamic businesses and together contribute to the vibrant growth of the region’s economies whilst providing good returns to the investors.

Oaklins’ team in Romania acted as the sole advisor to Brise Group, assisting in the preparation of the sale process, due diligence, structuring the transaction, negotiations and closing procedures.
