Norton Rose Fulbright advises COFCO Land on HK$2 billion acquisitions of two real estate companies

Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright has advised COFCO Land Holdings Limited on its acquisitions of the minority interests in Jetway Developments and Yalong Development (HK) Company.

The aggregate consideration was approximately HK$2 billion which was satisfied by the issue and allotment of shares in COFCO Land to the respective sellers.

The two companies became wholly-owned subsidiaries of COFCO Land upon the acquisitions, which were completed in August 2014.

Norton Rose Fulbright has also advised COFCO Land on the HK$14.2 billion reverse takeover of a property portfolio of commercial, office and hotel properties in China from COFCO Land Limited last year.
