General Atlantic Completes Acquisition of Joe & the Juice

Paul, Weiss advised General Atlantic in its acquisition of a majority stake in Joe & the Juice, a fast-growing freshly-made juice, coffee and sandwiches concept, from Valedo Partners. Under the terms of the transaction, General Atlantic became majority control shareholder of the company and Valedo Partners fully exited its investment. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

General Atlantic first partnered with Joe & the Juice through a strategic minority growth investment in 2016; Joe & the Juice has since quadrupled its revenue profitably and doubled its store footprint. Joe & the Juice plans to leverage its expanded partnership with General Atlantic to further accelerate the growth of its global footprint in key international markets, capitalize on strong customer demand and extend its digital distribution channels.

The Paul, Weiss team was led by corporate partners Matthew Abbott, Ian Hazlett and Kanesh Balasubramaniam, and included partners Suhan Shim, David Carmona and Christopher Cummings and counsel Christian Kurtz, Kristiina Leskinen and Nathan Mitchell; tax partners Robert Killip, Lindsay Parks and Cian O’Connor; intellectual property partner Claudine Meredith-Goujon; executive compensation partners Jarrett Hoffman and Lawrence Witdorchic and counsel Ron Aizen; and antitrust counsel Marta Kelly and Yuni Sobel.
