Haynes and Boone Advises WhiteWave in Acquisition of So Delicious

10/01/2014


Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers have advised WhiteWave in the just-announced acquisition of So Delicious Dairy Free for about $195 million.

With the all-cash purchase, WhiteWave would expand its plant-based food and beverage platform by adding a complementary brand with significant growth potential, particularly in the growing plant-based frozen dessert category.

The Haynes and Boone team was led by Dallas Partners Jan Sharry and John McGowan and included Dallas Associates Suzie Trigg, Brandon McCoy, Anthony Montague and Zach Burnett.

The deal is expected to close in the next few months, subject to customary closing conditions. WhiteWave intends to fund the acquisition through cash balances and available credit.
