BCLP advises Sberbank on rub 161 billion sale of Eurocement Group


Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (Russia) LLP (formerly – Goltsblat BLP LLP) advised Sberbank on the recently completed sale of debt and equity in Eurocement Group, following electronic auction, to the winning bidder – Mikhaylovsky Construction Materials Plant – for an aggregate consideration of RUB 161 bn (circa $2.16 bn) – positively viewed by Sberbank:

 “Unique in terms of size and structure, the transaction is unprecedented for the Russian market. It has been closed through an open and transparent market procedure during which its participants raised their bids over 40 times.”
