Mergers & Acquisitions
We advised Mahindra & Mahindra Limited in its add-on investment in combine harvester and forestry machine manufacturer Sampo-Rosenlew Oy. M&M hiked its stake in Sampo from some 79 % to 100 % by executing its call option right under an option exercise share purchase agreement.
Mahindra Group is one of the largest multinational federation of companies with 260,000 employees in over 100 countries. It enjoys a leadership position in farm equipment, utility vehicles, information technology and financial services in India and is the world’s largest tractor company by volume. It has a strong presence in renewable energy, agriculture, logistics, hospitality, and real estate.
Sampo’s key market areas are the Nordic countries, Europe, North Africa, and the CIS countries. Its turnover for the financial year that ended on 31 March 2022 was EUR 52 million. Following the transaction, M&M and Sampo will jointly focus on the combine harvester and specialty harvester business in Asia, Africa, the Eurasian Economic Union countries, and Latin America. Mahindra’s scale in tractors and Sampo’s expertise in combine harvesters allow both companies to offer a broader product portfolio to address the needs of farmers in various countries.
