Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira has advised the State, through Empordef, and other shareholders in the privatisation, announced today, of Empresa de Investigação e Desenvolvimento de Electrónica, SA (EID), which is specialised in the design and supply of information equipment and technologies for the defence and security market .



The team was led by João Mattamouros Resende, a partner of the Corporate Law department of Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira.

The deal had the value of 32 million euros for 99.98% of the capital of EID, paid by the Cohort group to the selling shareholders of EID: Empordef - Empresa Portuguesa de Defesa (S.G.P.S.) S.A., EFACEC Capital S.G.P.S. S.A, IAPMEI - Instituto de Apoio às Pequenas e Médias Empresas e à Inovação, I.P., and Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG.

EID therefore now becomes part of the Cohort group. Cohort plc is a company listed and based in the United Kingdom, focused primarily in the area of defence (land, sea and air) for governments and industrial clients.

The process is likely to be materialised in September, after the approval from the Ministries of Finance and Defence.

This is yet another privatisation advised by the law firm Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira. The privatisations of TAP, EGF, Caixa Seguros, ANA, HPP Group, Águas do Porto, EDP (8th phase of reprivatisation) and BPP (reprivatisation) also received legal advice from this law firm, in some cases from the seller’s perspective, and in others from the investor’s perspective.
