BLP has played a fundamental role in the acquisition of Corporación AUG by CMI in Costa Rica. This sweeping transaction involved a series of critical stages and a diverse group of sellers, marking a significant milestone for CMI in the country following the devastating fire at its plant in early 2023.
The firm’s advice covered various disciplines, from corporate and commercial law to financial, labor, environmental, regulatory, real estate, and regulatory compliance. The broad oversight included due diligence, contractual negotiations, and the complex process of closing the acquisition of Corporación AUG’s poultry facilities, production of eggs and cold meats business.
The acquisition of Corporación AUG represents a giant step forward in CMI’s growth and presence in Costa Rica.
The BLP team was led by partner Adriana Castro, Director Elia Naranjo, and Associate Diego Quieros. Along were directors Alexandra Aguilar, Carlos García, Fernando Shum, Luis Palacios, and León Weinstok, and associates Janelle Christie, Luis Herrera, Yanssi Paniagua, and Isabella Tristán.
