With multinational teams across the world, we offer integrated securities advice on international capital markets. Our lawyers offer innovative solutions in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex regulatory and economic landscape.
We have acted for shareholders in household-name companies on IPOs and other public offerings. We can help with everything from corporate and personal tax planning, to concert party agreements and governance.
On offerings with a US element, we have extensive knowledge of Regulation S offshore offerings and exempt offerings into the US under Rule 144A.
We advised a public company in negotiation of a $150 million convertible preferred stock private placement with a tender offer to follow at a value up to approximately $690 million.
We also work closely with the London Stock Exchange helping international as well as UK clients raise funds and list on both AIM and main market. For example we handled the €50m AIM IPO of Globalworth Real Estate Investments, a Romanian property developer.
Our strong Italian presence means we have been involved in a number of the AIM listings involving Italian issuers and advised in the consultation process led by Borsa Italia and the London Stock Exchange on the creation of AIM Italia.
We advised Fratelli Investments on its two debt and equity investments in the AIM-listed gold producer Serabi Gold. We also assisted Hightex Group with AIM placings and a US$10m loan facility and share placing relating to finance provided by TCA.
In Asia, our Singapore and Hong Kong offices are able to offer a wide range of services on the Singapore Stock Exchange and Hong Kong Stock Exchange from pre-IPO investments to listings and post-listing raising of capital involving debt, equity and hybrid instruments. Our Head of Greater China commercial practice, Mabel Lui was on the Hong Kong team of counsel advising one of the first H share issues by Chinese corporations with dual listing in Hong Kong and New York Stock Exchanges in 1993.
