Brazilian firms act in agreement between Nuvini and Mercato

Tauil & Chequer Advogados associated with Mayer Brown in the United States has advised the holding company of software companies Nuvini in a US$312 million business combination agreement between the Nuvini Group and SPAC Mercato. Machado Meyer Advogados and Latham & Watkins represented SPAC Mercato Partners.

Upon completion of the proposed business combination, the combined company will operate under the Nuvini name and its shares are expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the symbol NVNI. The company expects the transaction to provide Nuvini Group with broader access to the capital markets, positioning it as one of the leading consolidators of SaaS (Software as a Service) companies in its portfolio, in Latin America.
