Sayenko Kharenko has acted as Ukrainian legal counsel to AB InBev Efes B.V. with respect to its acquisition of shares of PJSC SUN InBev Ukraine from minority shareholders under the new procedures for mandatory tender offer and sell-out recently introduced to Ukrainian law.
According to Sayenko Kharenko, "the new MTO and sell-out procedures allow minority shareholders of a joint-stock company to sell their shares and exit the company in response to changes in the controlling shareholder. Both the MTO and sell-out procedures were triggered by the merger of businesses of Anheuser-Busch InBev S.A./N.V. and Anadolu Efes Biracilik ve Malt Sanayii AS, which was successfully completed in March 2018 as reported by CEE Legal Matters on April 13, 2018.
The Sayenko Kharenko team was led by Counsel Dmytro Korbut, supported by Associates Ilhar Hakhramanov and Mykola Lykhoglyad, all working under the general supervision of Partner Oleksandr Nikolaichyk.
