Waterland Private Equity Investments to acquire Attero

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek acts as legal counsel to Waterland Private Equity Investments.

Following an auction process, Waterland has agreed with Attero and Attero’s shareholders committee to make an offer for 100% of the shares in Attero, a large Dutch waste management company.  The intended EUR 170 million transaction will first be presented to the Works Council of Attero. The individual shareholders will then decide whether or not to accept Waterland’s offer. ​ In 2009, Attero’s shareholders decided that waste processing is not one of their strategic core activities. In June 2013, they decided to start the auction process.
