Represented Unison Capital in its Acquisition of Gourmet F&B Korea
Yulchon represented Unison Capital Korea (“Unison”) in its successful acquisition of a controlling interest in Gourmet F&B Korea Co., Ltd. (“Gourmet F&B”), a company specializing in trading, import and distribution of foods and beverages, from the two largest shareholders of Gourmet F&B (“Sellers”).
Gourmet F&B specializes in importing dairy products including cheese and butter products from various regions such as Europe, the United States and Australia and distributing them in Korea, and has the highest market share in the natural cheese business in Korea. Through the acquisition, Unison was able to successfully expand its portfolio investments into one of its target sectors consisting of the production and distribution of specialized food products.
Yulchon provided Unison with comprehensive assistance throughout the entire transaction, including reviewing and formulating the acquisition structure, conducting legal due diligence review, executing MOUs and the definitive agreements and filing business combination reports. Moreover, the current transaction involved a thorny issue concerning a major shareholder’s right of first refusal to acquire the shares of the Sellers, but Yulchon was able to provide Unison with practical and timely solutions to this issue, allowing the transaction to successfully close.
