Landmark Alantra acted as co-advisor to Grupo Gilinski on financial aspects related to the acquisition of 30.8% of the common shares of Grupo Nutresa in multiple tender offers in Colombia.
Grupo Gilinski is one of the largest economic groups in Colombia. Among its most relevant companies within the group are Banco GNB Sudameris and Grupo Semana, one of Colombia's leading media companies.
Grupo Nutresa is the leading food company in Colombia and one of the most relevant participants in the sector in LatAm. The company operates through eight business units: Cold Cuts, Biscuits, Chocolates, Tresmontes Lucchetti (TMLUC), Coffee, Retail Food, Ice Cream and Pasta. It currently holds over 50% market share of the combined processed foods market in Colombia, operates directly in 14 countries and sells in over 70 countries.
A subsequent agreement between Grupo Gilinski along with the other parties involved in the Grupo Sura and Grupo Nutresa transactions, would ultimately lead to Grupo Gilinski and its partners reaching control of Grupo Nutresa.
