mining and agriculture

SICP has an in-depth knowledge of the agricultural sector.

We have extensive experience in the dairy sector and wider farming industry with partners owning and operating dairy farms, and with their involvement in Wimm-Bill-Dann, one of the largest dairy producers in the FSU, which pioneered agricultural support programs throughout Russia.

We also advise various agricultural holdings on methods for improving mid to long term capitalization, and we have ongoing projects developing investment and exit strategies in the agricultural sector.

One of our acquisitions was Mercury Technology, a dealer of John Deere across four regions of Russia. Whilst operating this company we implemented an effective program of providing advice to local farmers on best international practices for the improvement of crop yields. We successfully divested Mercury Technology in 2014.
