Arab Today, arab today UAE Adeptio AD Investments Buys 26 % Stake in Kuwait's Americana

Emaar Properties chairman Mohamed Alabbar
Abu Dhabi - QNA

A UAE-based investor group led by Emaar Properties chairman Mohamed Alabbar said it agreed to buy Kuwait Food Company shares from its majority stockholder for $2.36 billion. 
Adeptio AD Investments, the group led by Alabbar, will pay 2.65 Kuwaiti dinars (Dh32.39) per share to buy a stake in the company known as Americana from Al Khair National for Stocks and Real Estate Co, the UAE (The National) online News reported the companies as saying in a statement. That represents a 26 % premium to the last closing price on Wednesday in a sales process that has stretched back at least two years. 
Adeptio will launch a mandatory takeover offer for the remaining shares of Americana at the same price, according to the statement. 
Al Khair owns a 67 % stake in the company that operates KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants in the Middle East and North Africa, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Throughout the years, suitors have included Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, KKR & Co and CVC Capital Partners. 
The shares of Americana have gained 5 % this year to 2.1 dinars, while Kuwait’s benchmark stock index has declined 3.9 per cent. 
"We are delighted to have acquired one of the crown jewels of the Middle East," Alabbar said in the statement. "With its long and successful history as the leading food and restaurants business in Mena, Americana is uniquely positioned in the region." Adeptio hired Goldman Sachs for advice on the transaction, as well as Allen & Overy as its lawyers. Rothschild advised Al Khair, which sought legal counsel from Clifford Chance. Standard Chartered Bank assisted in structuring the acquisition financing and joined Credit Suisse, Ahli United Bank, Emirates NBD, First Gulf Bank and National Bank of Abu Dhabi as mandated lead arrangers for the transaction.
