Combination with Cooperative Resources, Inc.
Our attorneys represented Koepon Holding B.V., a private Netherlands-based company, in its combination with Cooperative Resources, Inc., a Wisconsin based-cooperative, to form URUS, a holding company with cooperative and private ownership. Both companies are involved in cattle artificial insemination genetics and farm management information. We advised Koepon in the negotiation and execution of the agreement whereby the two entities combined their businesses, as well as various related agreements relating to the URUS business going forward. We also advised on tax, employee and employee benefit matters.
