North West Company Inc.’s $32 million acquisition of 76% of Road Town Wholesale Trading Ltd.


Conyers Dill & Pearman provided BVI legal advice to North West Company Inc. (TSX:NWC) in connection with its acquisition of 76.1 percent of Road Town Wholesale Trading Ltd.

North West is a Canadian-based, widely-held publicly traded retailer that specializes in serving smaller countries and regions.

The transaction continues to underscore Conyers’ leading position in advising on takeovers of BVI listed companies, having advised on nine out of the last 10 such transactions, including the US$1.35 billion acquisition of UTi Worldwide by DSV and the take private of China Metro-Rural Holdings last year.
