Mergers & Acquisitions

Details

Named the “Best Corporate and M&A Law Firm 2018 – Sudan” and honoured with Acquisition International’s prestigious 2018 Global Excellence Award, SCLO is a recognised leader in M&A work in Sudan.  SCLO is a leader in the mergers & acquisitions (M&A) field in Sudan, and we’ve advised all parties involved in all aspects of acquisition transactions, including share purchase agreements (SPA). Among the firm’s recent successes is an asset acquisition by an international pharmaceutical company which acquired one of the largest pharmaceutical factories in Sudan. Our work has also included the following:

  • Setting up a Sudanese company with 100% foreign ownership
  • Conducting comprehensive legal due diligence
  • Drafting and negotiating share purchase agreements (SPA’s)
  • Obtaining consent from the investment authority for acquisition deals
  • Counselling clients on acquisition transactions, complying with the nuances of Sudanese business practices, particularly as guided by international financial sanctions, and Sudanese foreign currency control
  • Transferring land titles to purchasers
  • Advising clients on compliance issues related to regulatory requirements for the Sudanese National Council for Drugs and Poisons
  • Transferring ownership of more than one hundred trademarks to a purchaser
  • A precedent-setting decision that allowed a foreign company owner the rights to distribute products in Sudan
  • Guiding business building infrastructures, advising a client in the pharmaceutical space in a significant upgrade to their factory and store warehouse to incorporate state-of-the-art technology. Our role also included advising on the construction contract, toll manufacturing agreement, and an operational loan that included a corporate guarantee for a sister company

We recently worked with one of London’s “magic-circle law firms” in advising an international client relating to an Acquisition matter with work including full legal due diligence, competition law, telecom regulations, corporate finance, contracts, employment and company law.
