Curtis Advises Cygnus Business Media, Inc. on the Sale of its Agriculture Group

Curtis represented Cygnus Business Media, Inc. in connection with the sale on July 30, 2013 of Cygnus’s Agriculture Group to a subsidiary of the American Farm Bureau Federation, an independent, non-governmental, voluntary organization based in Washington D.C. 
The Agriculture Group reaches the entire producer-to-processor chain. It is composed of five tradeshows, including four of the industry’s largest, producer-focused outdoor and indoor shows in America: Minnesota Farmfest, Dakotafest, Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show, Northern Illinois Farm Show, and the IDEAg-branded Interconnectivity Conference. The business also publishes FEED & GRAIN magazine and Case IH Farm Forum magazine, and associated digital content properties.
The Curtis M&A team was led by New York partner Evan Borenstein with assistance from New York associates Joshua Geller and Holly Sawyer, all of whom are in Curtis’s Corporate Department.  Other Curtis attorneys advising on the transaction include partner Steven Reisman (Restructuring & Insolvency), partner Andrew Otis (Environmental), counsel Cathy Baecher (Real Estate), partner Alan Berlin and counsel K.C. Chiang (Tax), partner Javier Hernandez (Employee Benefits) and partner Michael Graif (Intellectual Property).
