CAPH acquisition of Kimberley aggregation

Team: Bianca Jennings, Simon Venus

Service: Commercial Contracts | Foreign Investment & Trade
Sector: Agriculture & Food

Piper Alderman advised the buyer of the SAWA Aggregation of four cattle stations in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, comprising over 1 million hectares and approximately 47,000 head of cattle.

The complex $100 million deal involved securing approvals from the Foreign Investment Review Board, Pastoral Lands Board and Western Australian cabinet when controversy over foreign investment was arguably at its peak. The deal is one of the largest ever of its type in Western Australia.

The deal capped off over $700 million of corporate agribusiness transactions the Piper Alderman team advised on in 2016.
