7-Eleven finalises billion-dollar pickup with Baker McKenzie's help

Baker McKenzie has advised 7-Eleven International LLC and its Tokyo-listed parent company Seven & i Holdings as it finalised its acquisition of 7-Eleven Australia's convenience store business for $1.71bn.

According to co-lead partner Andrea Kennedy, the transaction was completed “after a rather protracted process, which started back in July 2022, and ultimately involved a lengthy competitive sale process”.

The acquisition terms were agreed upon in November 2023. With 7-Eleven Australia now under its umbrella, 7-Eleven International expands its portfolio with over 750 stores.
