Interim Treasury Support Brewer, Europe

Client Brief

The Central and Eastern Europe operations of a global brewing company were purchased by a financial sponsor in a carve-out transaction. Since treasury operations had previously been delivered by the parent and with the additional requirements that inevitably accrue from sponsor ownership, the business required a treasury operation to be established from scratch.
