BBVA Bancomer has acted as an exclusive financial advisor of the Mexican company Adas Capital for the purchase of a 100% stake in Arabela, S.A. de C.V. ("Arabela") from EMX Capital.

BBVA's expertise and knowledge of the consumer industry in Mexico and Central America have played a key in the transaction's success.
