Ho Chi Minh City, 24 July 2021
On 23 July, SCG Packaging Public Company Limited (SCGP) completed the acquisition of 70% equity stake in Duy Tan Plastics Manufacturing Corporation (Duy Tan). VILAF acted as counsel of SCGP in the transaction.
The purchase price includes the initial payment of VND3,630 billion (approximately US$157.8 million) and a second payment to be based on Duy Tan’s incremental financial performance for 2020 and 2021, for a total purchase price to be capped at VND6,400 billion (approximately US$278.3 million).
Duy Tan is Vietnam’s leading producer of rigid plastic packaging products, generating over US$200m revenues in 2020, with five subsidiaries.
SCGP is a subsidiary of Siam Cement Group (SCG), one of the leading conglomerates in Thailand.
The transaction has a complex arrangement involving an option to acquire the remaining stake and a subsidiary in another jurisdiction, an earn-out package, and a partnership arrangement.

Big thanks and congratulations to all the deal teams and other advisors for making this happen!”
