RTPR Allen & Overy has advised Allianz Capital Partners on the acquisition of a 30% stake in E.ON Distributie Romania, the largest electricity and gas distribution network operator in the northern part of Romania. This is the largest transaction in Romania in the energy sector in the last years.

The RTPR Allen & Overy team was led by Mihai Ristici and Alina Stăvaru (Romania), Karan Dinamani and Jon Fox (Allen & Overy London) and Ellen Braun (Allen & Overy Hamburg on antitrust). The transaction was supported by a team of 20 lawyers from the RTPR Allen & Overy office.

Mihai Ristici commented: “It’s a privilege to have assisted Allianz Capital Partners on their investment in E.ON. The success of this landmark transaction in the Romanian market represents a remarkable accomplishment for our team. I would also like to thank KPMG and Botezatu & Asociatii for their excellent collaboration, on this deal.”

Karan Dinamani said: “This is the second ground-breaking deal to sign in Romania this week that RTPR Allen & Overy has advised on, following Enterprise Investors’ exit from Profi, Romania’s largest supermarket chain. This demonstrates the depth and breadth of our international private equity practice which has enabled us to advise on some incredibly significant deals this year.”
