Taking on your challenges

3 January 2019

Laga is proud to have advised Alcopa in the sale of GMAN and Groep Bruyninx to Van Mossel Automotive Groep (VMAG).

Laga fielded a multi-disciplinary team drawn from the Corporate - M&A, Real Estate and EU Competition practices. The team was led by Marc Van tieghem (Corporate M&A Partner), and further included key members Wouter D’herde, Yannick Van den broeke (both Corporate M&A Senior Associates), Maxime Van der Weehe (Corporate M&A Junior Associate), Maximilien van de Werve de Schilde (Real Estate Partner) and Hendrik Viaene (EU Competition Partner).

Alcopa is a Belgian family owned industrial group that is internationally active in various sectors, including the automotive and building materials industries. The sale of GMAN and Groep Bruyninx represents a partial exit by Alcopa from the automotive dealership segment, with mainly Fidenco and Autopolis remaining in Alcopa’s portfolio.
