Por: LexLatin ImprimirVisualizar em PDF

Pinheiro Neto Advogados has helped Brazilian bioethanol, energy and sugar producer Cosan acquire additional shares in gas distributor Comgás for 206.2 million reais (US$53 million).

The intermediary bank, BTG Pactual, relied on BMA - Barbosa, Müssnich, Aragão. The seller, investment group BC Gestão de Recursos, is understood to have relied on in-house counsel, but this could not be confirmed prior to publication. The deal closed on 4 June.

Cosan first obtained a minority stake in Comgás when it went public in 1996, but waited until 2012 to acquire a controlling interest by purchasing 60.1% from the BG Group, and another 16.77% share from Shell. In January this year, it acquired a further 14.77% stake through a voluntary public offering that priced the shares at 82 reais (US$21) each. In the latest offering, Cosan has acquired 1.88% of Comgás' capital stock, paying 83.16 reais (US$21.38) apiece.

Comgás is a distributor of piped natural gas in São Paulo state. It has over 1.7 million customers.
