Highlights


Advising a family-owned construction business on the creation of two separate groups. In order to achieve the new structure, various steps were required to be undertaken, including intra-group business and asset transfers, incorporation of new entities, a share for share exchange and a demerger by way of a three-cornered reduction of capital. 


Assisting a group in the healthcare sector to simplify its group structure as a pre-cursor to a sale of the trading group. The transaction involved the assignment of inter-company balances, capital reductions and the dissolution of all non-trading entities in the group.


Acting for a company in the energy sector to facilitate urgent funding. The refinancing exercise included the exit of the existing majority shareholder by way of share buy-back and the creation of option arrangements in order to allow the new funder to become a majority shareholder in the company.
