Shearman, Latham and Pinheiro Neto steer bioscience M&A in Brazil

Por: Latin LawyerImprimirVisualizar em PDF

Latham & Watkins LLP's offices in New York and Chicago has helped Dutch health and nutrition company Royal DSM acquire the Brazilian arm of US bioscience company Amyris in a US$96 million deal.

Amyris hired Shearman & Sterling LLP in San Francisco and Pinheiro Neto Advogados in São Paulo.

DSM gets Amyris' fermentation facility, located in the state of São Paulo. The factory produces farnesene, an ingredient used in solvents, emollients and vitamins.

As part of the deal, both companies signed a long-term partnership agreement for Royal DSM to supply speciality compounds to Amyris. The US company says the sale will allow it to focus on its core business of developing breakthrough bioscience technologies.

The deal was signed on 17 November and is subject to customary closing conditions.
