Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) mandated Macquarie to advise on the complex cross-border public company acquisition of Coca-Cola Amatil Limited (Amatil).

The transaction would strengthen CCEP’s position as the number one Coca-Cola bottler globally, by revenue, and create new growth opportunities in the Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific regions. 

CCEP is the anchor bottler for Coca-Cola products in certain Western Europe markets including Great Britain, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Norway and the Benelux. Amatil was the anchor bottler for the Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Samoa and several other Pacific Island markets


Macquarie Capital acted as a financial adviser to CCEP. Macquarie’s reading of the transaction dynamics, strong relationships with Amatil’s shareholders and deep cross-border mergers and acquisition experience was key to a successful outcome.

With CCEP headquartered in London and listed on the London Stock Exchange (and other exchanges) and Amatil headquartered in Sydney and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, seamless collaboration between Macquarie’s London, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland teams was imperative to the success of this public markets transaction.


CCEP successfully acquired Amatil, in a transaction valued at ~$A11 billion and saw 99 per cent of independent shareholders voting in favour of the scheme resolution.
