Following the fulfilment of the conditions precedent foreseen in the preliminary agreements — including the EU antitrust authority's approval and the definition of the agreements with the pool of lenders — the closing of the transaction was finalised, whereby the private equity fund QuattroR SGR S.p.A. entered into the share capital of Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group by subscribing a reserved capital increase, giving QuattroR a final 50% stake in the capital, while the remaining 50% continues to be held by the Zanetti family.

Baker McKenzie advised Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group and the Zanetti family with a team led by Partner Pietro Bernasconi, with Counsel Chiara Marinozzi, Senior Associate Arianna Ferri and Trainee Anna Masut on the corporate aspects; Partner Ludovico Rusconi, Counsel Elisa Impalà and Trainee Alessandro Gianferrara on the financial aspects; and Partner Andrea Cicala with Associate Francesca Divetta on the antitrust aspects.
