Kirkland Represents TPG and ADIA on Investment in The CrownX

Kirkland & Ellis advised TPG, a leading global alternative asset firm, and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, a globally diversified investment institution that prudently invests funds on behalf of the Government of Abu Dhabi, on the acquisition of a minority stake in The CrownX. The CrownX is majority owned by Masan Group Corporation (HOSE: MSN) and forms part of Masan’s integrated consumer retail arm that consolidates its interests in Masan Consumer Holdings and WinCommerce. The transaction implies a post-money valuation of $8.2 billion for 100% of The CrownX’s equity, and marks the final capital raising for The CrownX in advance of preparing for an international IPO in 2023-2024.
