Darrois Villey Maillot Brochier advises GEFCO in the context of the acquisition of the group by CMA CGM
Paris, 11 April 2022
Darrois Villey Maillot Brochier advises the GEFCO Group in the context of:
– the repurchase of the entire 75% stake held by Russian Railways (RZD), placed on the list of sanctioned companies as a result of the war in Ukraine;
– the subsequent acquisition of nearly 100% of the shares of GEFCO by the CMA CGM Group including the minority shareholding of nearly 25% held by Stellantis N.V.
The acquisition by the CMA CGM Group is subject to the approval of the competition authorities. However, under a derogation procedure, the European Commission has authorized CMA CGM to immediately acquire GEFCO’s shares, pending final approval in the coming months.
The firm acted alongside McDermott Will & Emery LLP in this transaction.
The Darrois team included François Kopf, Jean-Baptiste de Martigny and Henri Savoie (partners) and Colin Marvaud, Lionel Simonet and Théo Rodriguez-Euzet (associates).
