DLA Piper in closing financing for Warc Africa

DLA Piper Argentina and DLA Piper US advised Warc Africa, a company serving some 20,000 smallholder farmers in Ghana and Sierra Leone with wholesale inputs and access to agricultural markets, on the closing of its $7.5 million Series B financing.

“This cross-border transaction reflects the investors’ interest in social impact and development programmes in West Africa and WARC’s ability to expand and penetrate local communities,” commented Antonio Arias, lead partner on the transaction.

Kelly & Basavilbaso Abogados advised the lead investor through a team composed of Julio Kelly and Santiago Basavilbaso.

DLA Piper Argentina’s team was led by partner Antonio Arias (pictured), together with associate Ignacio Bard. DLA Piper US was led by partner Bradley Gersich and lawyers Pilar Ay and Carlos Vaca.
