Allen & Overy Casablanca advises KMR in the acquisition of Laureate SOMED Education Holding
24 January 2018
Created 7 years ago, the UIC established its reputation as a strong academic player benefiting from State recognition. This change of leadership will provide more momentum for the growth of the institution as KMR is a leading state-recognized multi-disciplinary private higher education platform in Francophone Africa. It previously acquired another university in Morocco, UPM, and is planning on extending its network with more acquisitions in Africa. This strategy is supported by the private equity firm Development Partners International (DPI), one of the shareholders of KMR.
