Sayenko Kharenko acts as a legal counsel to Horizon Capital with respect to sale by its fund Emerging Europe Growth Fund III, LP (“EEGF III”) of the minority stake in Dobrobut (the “Company”), the leading private healthcare provider in Ukraine. The stake has been sold to the existing shareholders of Dobrobut, Mr. Oleg Kalashnikov and the investment company ‘Concorde Capital’.
Sayenko Kharenko’s team provided legal support for the seller during the negotiations, signing and implementation of the transaction, including preparing and negotiating transaction documents and supporting the closing of the transaction.
Partner Alina Plyushch comments: “For us this project started in 2019, when Sayenko Kharenko acted as legal advisor to Horizon Capital in relation to acquisition of a minority stake in Dobrobut. Now we have ensured successful closing of this transaction, which is a landmark project for Ukrainian private medical services market. I am convinced that it is hard to overestimate the importance of investing in medical sector today, when Ukraine is struggling with a pandemic”.
