BVA advises on the acquisition of stake in Wine by Carbyne

BVA – Barreto Veiga Advogados advises on the transaction which Carbyne’s Private Equity fund, known for its strategic investments in medium-sized companies with high growth potential outside the Rio-São Paulo axis, announced the acquisition of Rogério Salume’s (founding partner) position in Wine, consolidating its presence and commitment to regional business development.

With a history of significant investments in companies from Espírito Santo, such as Yooga, Fucape, and ATW, Carbyne reinforces its commitment to the economic and innovative growth of Espírito Santo. The acquisition of the founder’s stake in Wine marks the closing of an important chapter in the history of entrepreneurship in Espírito Santo, demonstrating that successful innovative initiatives can thrive outside the country’s major centers.

The fund, managed by Carbyne, a company aiming to become the leading investment bank in Brazil’s regional markets, continuously seeks investment opportunities in Brazilian regional markets, focusing on companies growing above 30% annually, especially where Apex has a strong presence.

In the last fiscal year, ending in September, Wine reported revenue of R$ 751 million, with almost 400,000 active subscriptions. Additionally, in the third quarter, the company posted a profit of R$ 4.6 million, evidencing its solid position in the market.
