23/03/2021

B2RLaw has advised Paine Schwartz Partners, a global leader in investments in the food and agribusiness sectors, on its investment through Paine Schwartz Food Chain Fund V in Kynetec, a leader in agricultural and animal health market research, data and insights.

Paine Schwartz Partners is a private equity firm focused exclusively on investment opportunities in the fast-growing, dynamic global food and agribusiness sectors. The firm’s investment, operations and finance professionals invest throughout cycles across the food and agribusiness value chain. The acquisition builds on Paine Schwartz’s track record of investing in data-driven food and agribusiness companies, including previous investments in Advanced Agrilytics, AgroFresh Solutions and FoodChain ID.

Kynetec provides market research for the agriculture and animal health industries, helping companies around the world understand the dynamics of their marketplaces, turning research into business opportunities and enabling clients to create winning strategies. Leveraging proprietary data sources and processing capabilities, the Company offers customers a suite of data-driven reporting and tracking solutions, as well as insight studies.

B2RLaw’s team was led by Partner Aleksandra Polak and included Partners Anna Cichońska and Marcin Huczkowski; Counsel Malwina Niczke-Chmura; and Associates Jakub Niemiec, Małgorzata Tomaka and Aleksandra Bartoszewicz.

Aleksandra advises, “It was only last week that B2RLaw formally launched our Agriculture and Agrifood Practice so its especially pleasing that we have been able to advise on this transaction, and testament in our belief that the flourishing food and agribusiness sector is an exciting industry to be involved in. We congratulate Paine Schwartz Partners and Kynetec on this transaction”.
