Our leveraged and acquisition finance team is able to assist borrowers and/or financiers (senior and mezzanine) to navigate their way through all the complexities and issues that are relevant in a leveraged or acquisition transaction, from providing advice in relation to structures, priority arrangements, the sales process and due diligence, to assisting on documentation and completion.
We are familiar with, and can advise on, all issues that may be relevant to a purchaser or a financier, including in a cross-border acquisition where Overseas Investment Office consent may be required.
"Infrawork is a great New Zealand business and we’re delighted to support its future growth aspirations. It was a herculean effort from all concerned to get the deal done in a challenging environment, and I’d particularly like to thank the Buddle Findlay team for their hard work and quality output."
