We support The Regenda Group’s successful New Ferry bid

Deal | Corporate

Share This

After a competitive tender process, The Regenda Group has been announced as the preferred developer for a multi-site regeneration plan in New Ferry, Merseyside – following support by leading law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

The project will bring 71 new homes to New Ferry, including one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses, which will be available for rent to buy and affordable rent.

Northwest-based The Regenda Group is made up of nine subsidiary companies, including social housing provider Regenda Homes, Redwing property agency, and M&Y Maintenance and Construction, which are all involved in the New Ferry project.

Shakespeare Martineau – which was appointed to Regenda Homes’ legal panel framework in 2020 – provided a high level review of the title and project structure and documentation, summarising and advising on the terms of the deal to inform The Regenda Group’s bid.

Joanna Lee-Mills, head of social housing development at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “We are very excited to be working with The Regenda Group on such a significant project to the local area.

This scheme will provide real benefits to the local community by seeking to deliver much-needed affordable housing units at a time when so many people are being hit by living costs escalating beyond salary rises.

“Our panel appointment will allow our legal team to support the group with its innovative and ambitious development plans, and we look forward to working collaboratively with the group to help translate its vision and objectives into a lasting legacy that will transform the local community.

Kevin Edwards, social housing legal director at Shakespeare Martineau, who is leading the delivery of the project, said: “We are extremely pleased to see The Regenda Group secure the winning bid for this very exciting project.

“This regeneration scheme will reinvigorate an up-and-coming area that has been in decline for a number of years. I was born in Birkenhead and grew up within two miles of the scheme so I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to help Regenda deliver this project alongside Wirral Council, which has itself put years of work into making this happen.

The Regenda Group will submit its detailed plans to Wirral Council’s planning committee towards the end of the summer.

Katie Davies, head of development at The Regenda Group, said: “We’re delighted to have been selected as the preferred developer for the New Ferry regeneration project and look forward to working alongside Wirral Council and the local community.

“The support provided by Shakespeare Martineau through the tender process was invaluable, putting us in a strong position in submitting our bid and agreeing amendments to documentation suited to our proposals.

Stephanie Harrison, executive director operations customer service for Regenda Homes, added: “We’re delighted to have been selected to work alongside Wirral Council and the residents of New Ferry on this vitally important regeneration.

“Our proposed plans meet the critical demand for affordable rent and homeownership in the area and we look forward to sharing them with the public in due course.

“As a local company with a strong community focus, we have pledged to create opportunities for local schools, colleges and young people no longer in education or training throughout and hope to deliver many benefits to the wider community, who collectively have been through so much in recent times.

8,100 hectares of forest sold in £113 million deal

Deal | Corporate

Share This

27 forests from across England, Scotland and Wales have been sold by the Foresight Inheritance Tax Fund to Foresight Sustainable Forestry Company Plc (FSFC) as part of an investment fund portfolio disposal, worth £113.4 million.

The sale, supported by law firm Shakespeare Martineau, saw FSFC acquire 11 afforestation sites, 15 forestry sites and one site which is both afforestation and forestry, extending across a total 8,117 hectares. The transaction marks a significant milestone for FSFC, following its listing last November.

Peter Mayhew, legal director at Shakespeare Martineau who advised Foresight Inheritance Tax Fund on the deal, said: “We’ve been working with Foresight for more than 20 years, supporting on billions of pounds worth of deals. This was a relatively complex deal including extensive negotiation and a pre-sale restructuring of the relevant assets presented for sale to FSFC. It’s great to be involved in such an important transaction for Foresight that is going to directly contribute to the afforestation targets of governments across the UK.

As well as the production of sustainable home-grown UK timber, acquiring afforestation sites, which drive return through capital appreciation and access to voluntary carbon credits is a core part of FSFC’s strategy and it continues to actively seek further investment opportunities.

Foresight Inheritance Tax Fund invests in infrastructure businesses and other related trades that offer a combination of stable and predictable cash flows, low correlation to economic, business and market cycles and relatively low default rates.

Birmingham law firm supports residential developer with corporate bond

Deal | Corporate

Share This

Shakespeare Martineau’s Birmingham office has supported residential developer One Heritage Group with the issuance and listing of a corporate bond on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

The bond – which has a fixed annual coupon of 8% that will be paid semi-annually – is not convertible and will mature in February 2024. The bond’s gross proceeds of £1,500,000 will be used to partially repay the existing loans outstanding to One Heritage Group. The issue of the bond required a Financial Conduct Authority approved prospectus and will be admitted to the standard segment of the Official List.

Keith Spedding, corporate partner at full service law firm Shakespeare Martineau, who led the deal, said: “It has been great to assist One Heritage Group with this issuance and listing – just 18 months after we supported the company in its admission to the London Stock Exchange.

“We work with a number of residential development and housing clients – at all stages of their business lifecycle – and it’s good knowing that we’re working with businesses and organisations doing the important job of tackling the shortage of good accommodation across the UK.

One Heritage Group is a property development and investment management company, which focuses on the residential sector primarily in the north of England. In 2020, One Heritage Group became one of the first publicly-listed residential developers with a focus on co-living.

CEO Jason Upton said: “The issue of the corporate bond demonstrates how the management team is diversifying sources of funding for the business in an effort to reduce risk and the cost of finance for the organisation.

“The funds were all raised outside of the UK, which demonstrates the strength of our overseas network, notably in Hong Kong. We automatically turned to Shakespeare Martineau to support us on this and Keith and his team delivered.

Shakespeare Martineau one of four to secure slot on housebuilder’s national legal panel

Blog | Residential Development

Share This

After a lengthy tender process, leading law firm Shakespeare Martineau has been appointed to national developer Lovell Homes’ Core Legal Services Panel.

Led by partners Neil Gosling and Kevin Joynes, the residential development team successfully took on the highly-competitive tender process, securing one of four available slots on the three-year panel, sharing a legal spend of more than £3 million per annum.

The firm’s role will largely involve carrying out residential development work, including land acquisition, strategic land, legal planning and later living, as well as providing advice on property disputes and construction matters in England and Wales.

Head of residential development at Shakespeare Martineau Neil Gosling said: “To be one of the four firms chosen to form Lovell’s new legal panel is hugely exciting, especially as we were competing against a number of large, national firms.

“We’ve invested significantly in our people in recent years to ensure we have an incredibly strong group of talented lawyers across numerous disciplines who are all perfectly placed to provide the best advice at all times.

“The appointment adds to our already impressive list of existing residential development clients and will help us to achieve our growth ambitions. We very much see this as the start of a long-term relationship with Lovell, and we are looking forward to delivering outstanding service to the developer and becoming one of its key suppliers of legal services.

With more than 60 high-experienced and wholly specialist residential development experts nationally, Shakespeare Martineau supports housebuilders at all stages of their residential and mixed-use developments.

As a full-service law firm, the team also draws on the deep expertise of its colleagues to help clients with any related matter, including planning issues, construction warranties and building agreements, property disputes, and corporate and tax structuring.

Tonia Atkinson, Lovell’s head of legal, said: “We're pleased to welcome Shakespeare Martineau onto our panel as legal advisers. The fresh thinking shown by the team during the tender process really impressed us and we're excited to work with them moving forward.”

Our corporate team supports company’s interest in inflammatory disease treatment

Deal | Corporate

Share This

Listed UK diagnostics developer Cizzle Biotechnology has acquired a 5% economic interest in treatments for inflammatory pulmonary and cardiovascular disease – with support from Shakespeare Martineau’s Birmingham office.

Cizzle Biotechnology – which was originally a spin-out from the University of York – has entered into a definitive agreement with Conduit Pharmaceuticals Limited and medical charity St George Street Capital Limited in association with the development of AZD 1656 or other similar treatments developed by the two companies.

In a clinical trial, data showed there was a significant increase in the migration of the regulatory T cells – which potentially reduce serious cardiovascular and lung diseases that are causative in the development of lung cancer, which Cizzle is developing a diagnostic test to identify – from the patients who had taken the drugs compared to those who had not.

Keith Spedding, corporate partner at full service law firm Shakespeare Martineau, who led the deal, said: “The biotech industry is absolutely fascinating – we are seeing huge movements and rapid growth in this market as clinical need increases and technology and innovation races to keep up.

“It has been great to get this deal over the line, which will allow Cizzle to develop treatments and continue developing its blood test for the early detection of lung cancer.”

The agreement is in addition to Cizzle’s existing interest in AZD 1656, which was announced on 20 September 2021. It supports the company’s ambitions to expand its target customer base into the pharmaceutical industry and is in line with its strategy of building a portfolio of early cancer detection tests, companion diagnostics and royalty bearing stakes in significant drug assets.

Executive chairman Allan Syms said: “The agreement represents an important extension to our close relationship with Conduit Pharmaceuticals Limited and St George Street Capital Limited.

“On 20 September 2021, we announced we had acquired a stake in St George Street Capital Limited’s AZD 1656 asset and we are now pleased to have the opportunity to increase our stake by an additional 5%.

“This new agreement supports our ambitions and is in line with our growth strategy. Keith and his team were able to react quickly to get this deal over the line.”

Birmingham law firm supports acquisition of pirate deterrent group

Deal

Share This

Pirate deterrent product makers Guardian Maritime and Guardian Barriers will be acquired by cash shell Nu-Oil and Gas – following support from Shakespeare Martineau’s Birmingham office.

Nu-Oil and Gas have also confirmed it intends to re-list on the main market of the London Stock Exchange once the acquisition has been completed, which is expected in January 2022 – allowing public market investors to gain exposure to maritime security companies and the global fight against piracy.

Following admission, the company will change its name to Guardian Global Security plc.

Full service law firm Shakespeare Martineau acted on behalf of the majority shareholders of Guardian Maritime and Guardian Barriers on their sale.

Corporate partner Keith Spedding, who led the deal, said: “We are delighted to have assisted Guardian’s shareholders during this deal. Following the acquisition and subsequent admission, the newly-formed Guardian Global Security plc will have unparalleled market-leading knowledge, experience and contacts in the maritime sector and unique access to expansion opportunities.

The patent-protected Guardian system is used to visually deter pirates from maritime vessels. As far as the company is aware, no vessel fitted technology has been breached, including five that have been subjected to attempted attacks.

David Stevens, co-founder of the companies, said: “We were delighted with the support provided by Keith Spedding and Gweni Rees-Evans. With their experience, they were able to guide us through a complex process.

Hayward Tyler Fluid Handling acquires Transkem Plant

Deal

Share This

Shakespeare Martineau’s Birmingham office has supported Hayward Tyler Fluid Handling (HTFH) – part of Avingtrans’ process solutions and rotating equipment division – with its acquisition of Transkem Plant Limited, which manufactures mixers and agitators for blue chip companies.

The deal will see Transkem’s operations move 14 miles south from Hillington, near Glasgow, to HTFH’s site in East Kilbride. The firm’s managing director Stuart Gibson will head up the new combined operation under the HTFH brand.

Full service law firm Shakespeare Martineau acted on behalf of HTFH, including through its Scottish property expert Amal Kaur.

Corporate partner Keith Spedding, who led the deal, said: “It has been a pleasure to once again support our long-standing client Avingtrans, this time via its process solutions and rotating equipment division. For more than a decade, we’ve seen the firm implement and progress its strategy and we’ve been able to support this with our international, corporate and MedTech expertise.

The acquisition brings together two respected names in the processing industries – helping to expand their offering for new and existing customers across the globe.

HTFH designs, manufactures and services performance-critical electric motors and pumps to meet the most demanding of applications for the global energy and chemical industries.

Austen Adams, managing director of Avingtrans’ process solutions and rotating equipment division, said: “Transkem is well-known for designing and manufacturing specialist mixers for the pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food and beverage industries.

This fits neatly with HTFH’s expertise producing pumps and valves, as well as our in-house mixer testing capabilities. By consolidating the two businesses, we can expand our offer for new and existing customers around the world, becoming a more rounded fluid handling provider and creating a strong foundation for future growth.

Jennie Davis and the Shakespeare Martineau team did another excellent job.

Transkem, which was founded in 1934, is a founding member of the Fluid Mixing Process Group at Cranfield University – playing a key role in the development of the fluid mixing design guide, which remains the basis of mechanical mixer designs to this day.

Corporate team complete £369m AUM transfer for Mobeus Venture Capital Trusts

Deal

Share This

New deal with Mobeus Venture Capital Trusts

After an extensive due diligence process led by Shakespeare Martineau, the boards of the four Mobeus advised venture capital trusts (Mobeus VCTs) have unanimously approved the transfer of their management contracts – relating to combined assets under management (AUM) of £369m – from Mobeus Equity Partners (Mobeus) to Gresham House as part of the £36.1m acquisition by Gresham House of Mobeus’ VCT business.

Following completion of the acquisition, which is expected to take place at the end of September, the Mobeus VCT team – comprising 16 full-time employees, including two partners, plus three consultants – will transfer to Gresham House, a specialist alternative asset manager offering funds, direct investments and tailored investment opportunities, which includes managing the existing £486m AUM Baronsmead VCTs.

Corporate partner and head of investment funds Kavita Patel and corporate legal director Peter Mayhew, both of Shakespeare Martineau, acted on behalf of the four Mobeus VCTs as part of the transaction.

Kavita said: “We have acted for the Mobeus VCTs for the past 20 years, so we’re delighted to have supported them in the transfer of their management contracts to Gresham House. This represents a new step in the evolution of both the Mobeus and Gresham House VCT businesses, with increased prospects for shareholders flowing from the combined capability.”

Peter added: “The boards have taken their responsibilities very seriously and we have assisted them in undertaking significant due diligence, in particular, to ensure that the transaction is in the interests of shareholders.”

Following completion of the acquisition of Mobeus’ VCT business and transfer of the Mobeus VCTs’ contracts, the enlarged Gresham House strategic equity division will have six VCTs under management with more than £850m AUM – creating a leading player in the VCT market.

Shakespeare Martineau advises on purchase on Britain's 'most expensive street'

Deal

Share This

Luxury residential real estate purchase deal

London and Monaco real estate company REDD has purchased One Palace Green in Kensington Palace Gardens, London, to convert into a £100m luxury residential scheme, with the support of law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

The grade II*-listed 17,000 sq ft mansion, which backs onto Kensington Palace and dates back to 1870, will be sensitively restored and converted into a number of luxury homes following significant investment.

The deal saw REDD purchase the property via a complex multi-jurisdictional deal.

Simon Robinson, partner at Shakespeare Martineau advised REDD on the transaction, he said: “It is rare that high value investment and development real estate deals are simple, even when they look so initially. We always knew there would be complexities in this multi-jurisdictional matter but over the course of the year that we sat alongside REDD and the Marzocco family office we worked through a plethora of technical, legal and commercial challenges that were embedded this real estate purchase. 

Working under considerable pressure throughout the stages of the deal the importance of working as a connected team across our specialist departments - almost entirely virtual - was vital. From a personal perspective, the communication within the Shakespeare Martineau team enhanced our project management role and allowed me to interact regularly and as clearly as possible with the client and their wider team. This was highlighted as we worked with Counsel in across four separate offshore jurisdictions, dealing with a prestigious and sensitive listed property which is part of the Crown Estate.

Working closely with the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, The Crown Estate, local stakeholders and heritage groups to design the restoration, it’s anticipated REDD will submit a planning application later this year with construction planned for summer 2022. Completion is scheduled for 2024.

Russell Smithers, managing director of REDD, said: “One Palace Green is a landmark acquisition for REDD and will create one of the top-tier luxury residential developments in London. We will utilise our in-house development management expertise, with our team of extremely experienced individuals in the fields of heritage restoration and luxury design, to deliver the finest new residences on Kensington Palace Gardens. We are currently working on initial ideas and look forward to speaking to the local community shortly.

Shakespeare Martineau assisted with all legal aspects of the purchase including real estate, corporate, finance and tax. Working alongside Simon Robinson was Danielle Cooper, Lucy Saddington, Catherine Moss, Georgia Keogh, Christopher von Strandmann, Oliver Gutman, Joshua Hartle, Paul Wakefield and Jayne Meakin.

Samantha Vaughan, associate at Shakespeare Martineau who led the deal, said: “We have a long standing relationship with Northern Trust, and as well as acquisitions we support lettings across estates in the Midlands.  

“Property remains a solid investment and we’re seeing a lot of activity in this market. It’s also great to see investments in the West Midlands continue to grow as it remains a key site for light industrial, manufacturing and employment.”  

Director Tom Parkinson said: "We have been expanding our industrial portfolio through new acquisitions and developments; and this latest acquisition offers good quality industrial space which will complement our existing estates in the Midlands.”

Deal

US cultural exchange company broadens horizons with UK travel organisation acquisition

US-based travel company International Training & Exchange Inc (Intrax) has acquired UK youth travel organisation Invasion Group Ltd, with the support of law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

The acquisition forms part of Intrax’s strategy to expand outside of the US into UK and overseas markets. Intrax has a presence in more than 100 countries around the world with 22,000 participants at its programs each year, including summer camp placements, high school exchange programmes, global internships, au pair and work/travel opportunities.

Invasion, which has headquarters in Manchester, offers young people holiday, volunteering and work opportunities across the US, Canada, Asia and Australia. With clear business synergies between the companies, Intrax is well placed to utilise the existing brand awareness and stretch created by the Invasion brands for its overseas and US expansion.

Acting on behalf of Intrax and its UK subsidiary, Shakespeare Martineau supported the travel company on this major strategic international acquisition, including providing corporate, real estate, tax, intellectual property and employment law advice on the acquisition and on-going matters.

Catherine Moss, partner at Shakespeare Martineau led the deal, she said: “The travel industry has taken a massive hit this year, but pent-up demand is going to see a surge in appetite for holiday and career-related travel in people of all ages. This is a great deal for both parties, with clear commonalities and shared ambitions. We were very pleased to help Intrax move into new markets with the acquisition of this exciting UK brand.

“The deal was conducted entirely virtually from start to finish.

Marcie Schneider president of International Training & Exchange Inc, said: “The acquisition of Invasion is a significant step in broadening our reach and we plan to support the brand with investment to grow its operations across the US and internationally.

“This is a significant milestone in our company’s history and we look forward to a resurgent and bright future for our global business.

Shakespeare Martineau team included Jon Heuvel, Christopher Von Strandmann, Kim Walker, Simon Robinson, Oliver Gutman, Georgia Keogh and Santina Taylor.

Deal

East Imperial just the tonic for Bermele PLC in £24 million deal

Bermele PLC has purchased branded premium mixer specialist East Imperial in a deal worth more than £24 million, with the support of law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

In addition to the acquisition Bermele PLC also raised £3 million by way of a placing and will be re-admitted to the standard list and trading on the London Stock Exchange. Shakespeare Martineau supported the company in the acquisition and fundraising, having advised on its Initial Public Offering in 2017, then raising £1 million.

Pitted as Fever Tree drinks main competitor, New Zealand-based premium mixer supplier East Imperial produces and markets a line of 11 branded premium mixers that sell throughout the Asia-Pacific and the United States of America and has sights set on the UK market.

Anthony Burt, CEO of East Imperial, said: “Our London listing is an exciting opportunity for us to accelerate our growth and benefit from the increasing demand we’ve seen for ultra-premium mixers among consumers across the globe. We’ve got a great platform to build our market share across Asia, the US and Europe and we want to replicate our success in new regions including the UK.

“We’ll also be investing in our multi-channel offer to deliver our premium mixers direct to consumers who want to enjoy them at home, a trend which has accelerated over the last 18 months.

Toby Hayward, non-executive chairman of Bermele Plc, said: “I am delighted that we are today announcing the proposed acquisition of East Imperial Pte. Ltd.  Naturally we turned for legal advice to Keith and his team at Shakespeare Martineau, they having dealt with the original IPO and have been very pleased with their advice and assistance.

Keith Spedding, partner and business transaction specialist at Shakespeare Martineau led the international deal and re-admission on behalf of Beremele PLC, he said: “This is yet another example of a great investment made in international businesses by UK listed companies. Food and drink is a sector that continues to see growth and the additional funds generated will provide a springboard for the brand’s entry into new regions and territories.

Keith was assisted by associate Jennie Davis and solicitor Gweni Rees-Evans. Tompkins Wade (New Zealand), Longbow Law Corporation (Singapore) and Smith Gambrell Russell (United States) supported on the overseas aspects. Fasken advised East Imperial.

The deal will see Bermele PLC acquire East Imperial for an aggregate consideration of £24.45 million and is conditional on shareholder approval.  It is expected to be admitted to trading on  19 July 2021.

Corporate team hits £4 billion deals milestone

Our corporate team has had an outstanding start to the year, totalling more than £4 billion in deals - a new record for the firm.

Completing an average of three deals per week in the first quarter from January to March this year, we have supported ambitious businesses with their transactions across the length and breadth of the country. The deals, spanning the East Midlands, West Midlands and South East regions, form part of recent growth plans at the firm, which aims to double in size by 2023.

The blockbuster £4 billion figure includes retail sector work, notably the recent Dr Martens float, which raised £1.3 billion in new funds at a market capitalisation of £3.7 billion. We’ve also supported a number of fast growing tech businesses, including Solid State, Monovate, cybersecurity start-up fcase, biotech manufacturer Legume Technology and longstanding engineering client, Avingtrans.

Highest value of deals the Midlands

As well as coming out on top as the leading firm in the Midlands in terms of deal value in the latest quarterly M&A league table by Experian, we were also one of the top three law firms in the region for the volume of transactions, completing an impressive 14 over the Q1 period.

Duncan James, head of corporate at Shakespeare Martineau said: “This high level of activity is what everyone wanted to see coming into 2021. Even though some deals were pushed through ahead of changes in the Budget, we’re still seeing that money is still flowing around the country and business is largely carrying on as normal.

“There is a lot of liquidity in the market right now, and plenty of opportunity for deals, investments and cash raising. We’re seeing a lot of investment activity in the engineering, biotech, manufacturing and healthcare space, particularly in the East and West Midlands markets.

“The sheer variety of sectors we’ve worked with across all of our offices and geographies shows the expertise we have within the corporate team and across the firm more widely. Our people are working with some of the sharpest minds in the business world, guiding industry-leading transactions.

“We’re always on the lookout for fresh talent too and if anything, our first quarter this year shows that any new joiners would be involved in some incredibly interesting work.”

Lung cancer detection technology acquired in £21 million deal

Bould Opportunities has acquired Cizzle Biotechnology Limited in a multi-million pound deal, and raised more than £2.2 million, conditional on shareholder approval.   The combined entity will be listed on the Standard list and London Stock Exchange, with the support of Midlands law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

Cizzle Biotechnology, which is a spin-out from the University of York, is focused on patent protected technology for the early detection of lung cancer through the development of a blood test for the CIZ1B biomarker, and has been sold to Bould Opportunities in London for a total consideration of £21 million.

Bould Opportunities, a formerly AIM quoted company, was seeking acquisitions after disposing of its existing trading subsidiaries.

Allan Syms, chairman of Bould Opportunities, said: “I am delighted to have exchanged on the acquisition of Cizzle Biotechnology. I believe that the acquisition presents huge value for Bould Opportunities, with a technology looking to address an urgent clinical need. Shakespeare Martineau has been excellent in supporting us and Cizzle Biotechnology through the process, they understand our sector and have helped us get the best possible outcome for all stakeholders.”

Keith Spedding, partner and business transaction specialist at Shakespeare Martineau led the deal on behalf of Cizzle Biotechnology Limited, said: “The biotech industry is absolutely fascinating, we are seeing huge movements and rapid growth in this market as clinical need increases and technology and innovation races to keep up.  It’s been a long journey but great to get this deal done which will allow Cizzle now to continue to develop its blood test for the benefit of many in the continuing fight against cancer.

Keith was assisted by Jennie Davis and Gweni Rees-Evans.

Helping to detect lung cancer early

According to Cancer Research UK, in 2018 there were 17 million new cases of lung cancer globally with cases expected to grow to more than 27 million by 2040.

Allan continued: “Lung cancer is incredibly hard to diagnose at an early stage as there are few clinical symptoms. However, I believe that Cizzle Biotechnology can provide a solution to this problem through the blood test it is developing for the early detection of a majority of the different forms of lung cancer.”

Allenby Capital Limited acted as financial adviser and Novum Securities Limited as broker.

Dominic Prentis and Richard Pull of Goodman Derrick acted for Bould.

Shakespeare Martineau supports multimillion-pound acquisition of financial coaching business

The East Midlands corporate team at law firm Shakespeare Martineau supported Adam Price, the founder of financial planning firm Hatch Financial Planning, throughout a multimillion-pound acquisition by Octopus Group.

Hatch, which works with the likes of MoneySuperMarket, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Epson, and Experian in offering affordable expert financial coaching, will shortly rebrand to Octopus Moneycoach. Ambitious plans are in place to grow the business from 30 to 200 employees over the next two years and to bring financial coaching to the mass market, with both AI and human advice services available to customers.

As one of the UK’s fastest growing financial services companies, Octopus’s acquisition of Hatch will enable the business to reach a wider audience, helping even more people to access vital financial services. Partnering with other established financial advice businesses already housed within the Octopus Group, Octopus Moneycoach will focus on offering financial coaching and planning to the employees of businesses who are looking to further support their workforce.

Led by Lincoln-based corporate partner Michael Squirrell, the Shakespeare Martineau team supported Adam Price, the founder and CEO of Hatch, on all legal aspects of the transaction.

Of the transaction, Michael Squirrell, said: “Octopus Group is one of the UK’s fastest-growing companies, unafraid to invest in other entrepreneurially-minded businesses.  With Hatch being a leading player in the financial coaching market, the synergies between the businesses are clear and the sale of Hatch proves that there remain plenty of great investment opportunities out there.

“It was a pleasure to act for Adam on the sale, playing our small part in this important step forward on Hatch’s mission. The creation of Octopus Moneycoach to complement Octopus’s existing financial services businesses is the perfect next stage for Hatch.

Adam Price, founder and CEO of London-based Hatch, said: “There is a misconception that financial services are only for corporate giants and multi-millionaires. Hatch’s goal has always been to change attitudes towards financial planning, making it a simple and affordable process for everyone. Octopus Group shares this vision, having consistently championed financial advice, making it a natural partner for Hatch.

“I am hugely grateful to Michael and the rest of the corporate team at Shakespeare Martineau, whose expertise and guidance made the acquisition as smooth as possible.

The Shakespeare Martineau team involved in the acquisition comprised Michael Squirrell, Oliver Gutman, Sam Naunton, Oscar Ciaurro and Tait Grundy.

Shakespeare Martineau helps cyber security start-up secure investment

We supported fcase with securing investment from start-up and scale-up funders Wayre UK, part of Telefonica’s innovation hub.

fcase, which specialises in fraud detection and prevention orchestration technology, will use the investment to further develop its sophisticated and extremely flexible technology, which centralises and automates the end-to-end framework for fraud operation centres.

Our team, comprising Catherine Moss, Georgia Keogh, Oliver Gutman and Tijen Ahmet, advised on the corporate and tax issues relating to the investment, having previously worked with fcase advising on business immigration.

Catherine Moss, partner and corporate finance expert said: “Cybersecurity, tech and digital are all proving sound investment areas for many funds. With fraud increasing as more people started working from home, it’s innovative technologies like those created by fcase which will make a difference to the safety and security of people and businesses by creating accessible, easy to use digital solutions supporting consumer financial services products. We look forward to continuing with fcase as they grow.”

Emre Sayin, CEO of fcase said: “We found that too often, banks, financial services, and insurance companies face the challenge of siloed anti-fraud systems and operations with little-to-no cross-functional or departmental communication, delivering significant inefficiencies and gaps that fraudsters exploit. For fraud prevention and operations to be effective, the enterprise must be connected and working in harmony via one final fraud orchestration layer connecting and managing point systems, such as anti-fraud.

“With our unified system, enterprises have a full picture of their fraud operations, diminished operational challenges, and a superior customer experience. Not only does fcase set a new standard for fraud operations management, but we also guarantee effective customer support through our 24/7 on-call system.

“This is a really exciting step in our growth journey and the team at Shakespeare Martineau have played a crucial part in getting our business investment-ready.”

Shakespeare Martineau supports Tulla Resources' £80m listing on Australian Stock Exchange

We have supported Australian-based gold mining company Tulla Resources go to market in order to raise more than £43 million. The deal, which will see Tulla Resources – a UK plc – floated on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), raise £43.53 million of new money from investors. As a result, the company will be worth more than £80 million when its depositary interests are re-listed on the ASX.

Money raised from the flotation will be used to fulfil obligations under its farm-in and joint venture agreement with ASX-listed Pantoro Limited.

Tulla Resources has 50% interest in the Central Norseman Gold Project - a historical gold mine located near the town of Norseman in the Goldfields of Western Australia that has produced over 5.5Moz of gold since operations began in 1935. The other 50% interest of Central Norseman Gold Project is held by ASX-listed company Pantoro Limited, which acquired that interest from Tulla Resources via a farm-in and joint venture agreement.

Working in partnership with Australian firm Herbert Smith Freehills, we advised on the pre-flotation restructuring and the UK aspects of the flotation, having held a long-standing relationship with the mining company as its company secretary since 2005 and UK legal adviser since 2018. Our team comprised Ben Harber, Catherine Moss, Hannah Maxwell and Georgia Keogh.

Catherine Moss, corporate partner said: “The listing of depositary interests in a UK plc on an overseas exchange is always a challenging process as we work with a company through the complexities of differing company law, takeover and corporate governance regimes.  Together with Herbert Smith Freehills in Australia and Tulla Resources’ registrars we sought to enable Tulla Resources to do so as cleanly and efficiently as possible.

“At the moment, as it comes out of a period of intermittent lockdown, the Australian economy is starting to move into growth again and, as gold is a strategic asset for economically uncertain times, investing in companies that have access to provable reserves has become highly attractive for investors both in Australia and elsewhere.”

Mark McIntosh, Tulla Resources CFO said: "This matter threw up innumerable challenges which Shakespeare Martineau addressed, often at short notice, to enable the company to achieve its objective of becoming a listed public company and raising capital to secure funding for its 50% interest in the Norseman Gold Project.

"The company is immensely grateful for the advice and support of Catherine and Shakespeare Martineau. They were absolutely first class."

Shakespeare Martineau supports Solid State in multi-million pound acquisition

Shakespeare Martineau has supported Worcester-based technology manufacturer, Solid State plc ,with the acquisition of London headquartered Active Silicon Limited for an initial consideration of £6.3m. 

AIM listed manufacturer Solid State produces computing, power and communications products, and is a value added supplier of electronic and opto-electronic components.

Established in 1988, Active Silicon designs and manufacturers imaging and embedded vision systems, allowing the capture, processing, and transmission of image data in high performance and critical environments. With a longstanding, global customer base, Active Silicon’s products have applications in multiple areas of industry, science, and technology - including advanced manufacturing, life sciences, robotics, medical imaging, security and defence  

The acquisition of Active Silicon will boost the manufacturers product portfolio and enables the enlarged Group to address the growing demand for 3D vision and robotic applications, as well as the increased requirements for embedded machine vision and edge AI computing products. As a result, the acquisition also provides scope for the design and manufacture of own brand products and further routes to a global market for the expanded Solid State plc Group. 

The initial consideration of £6.3m which, when adjusted for the cash on the balance sheet, resulted in an effective net initial consideration of approximately £2.7m. It has been funded by the Group’s existing cash resources and banking facilities.  

Keith Speddingcorporate partner, who advised Solid State plc on the legal aspects of the acquisition, said: “We’ve been working with Solid State plc for more than 10 years, seeing them make multiple deals in that time. Its great to a see a West Midlands headquartered firm continue to grow and move from strength to strength in the current challenging environment. There are clearly opportunities in the current market for those with strong businesses. 

Gary Marsh, CEO at Solid State plc, said: “Solid State’s acquisition strategy targets complementary technologies with exposure to structural growth markets.  The acquisition of Active Silicon achieves both of these objectives while additionally broadening the capacity for the enlarged Group to increase its range of own brand products and value-added services.  This marks the sixth acquisition on which Shakespeare Martineau has advised us. The high quality, pragmatic advice provided by Keith Spedding and his team is very much appreciated.

Deal

Shakespeare Martineau raises more than £2m in two days with deal duo

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau helped raise more than £2.1 million in just two days by advising a pair of businesses on placings and subscriptions on the Standard List and AIM.

Clients of the firm; Crossword Cybersecurity Plc and One Heritage Group Plc announced the share issues on the 10th and 11th February 2021. Both had high demand from new and existing investors.

Property developers One Heritage Group undertake development and re-development of new and existing buildings, as well as facilities management and managing the letting of the properties. The new shares generated an additional £548,500 investment in the business in order to expand its property portfolio.

Cybersecurity and risk management experts Crossword Cybersecurity Plc undertook an oversubscribed fundraising of more than £1.6 million. The technology commercialisation company will invest the funds into sales and marketing resource, for product development and support for general working capital purposes.

Hybridan LLP acted as broker to both companies in connection with the placings.

Keith Spedding, partner and business transaction and growth specialist at Shakespeare Martineau, who advised on both deals, said: “These deals go to show that money is out there and available for good companies with good stories, and there is no sign of it drying up. Property and technology sectors are seeing a huge amount of investment, with other sectors such as MedTech and fashion also making stock market headlines. We are very pleased to have helped these two excellent companies on their growth plans.”

Experts in fast-growing businesses Shakespeare Martineau is reporting high levels of transactions in the Midlands and nationally – with the corporate team having supported several multi-million pound sales and mergers across property, biotech and finance sectors as well as advising the founding family of Dr Martens in its recent admission to the market as well as One Heritage Group’s original submission in December 2020.

Shakespeare Martineau advises Dr Martens family founders in multi-billion pound float

Northamptonshire-turned-global shoe brand Dr Martens has launched at the top of the range valuation of 370p per share, equating to a £3.7 billion market cap.

Advising the family founders of the household-name brand is the corporate team at Shakespeare Martineau who also advised the Griggs family on the company’s original sale in 2014 to private equity giant Permira for £300m – at the time of sale, the family retained a 10% stake in the business.

“This has been an incredibly successful float and indicates the interest and value in such as well-established and popular brand, as shown by the IPO offer being eight times oversubscribed and within the first hours of the trading the share price jumping in value.   The successful float is a culmination of the success and hard work of the Griggs family and later the management backed by Permira.

“We have a long-standing relationship with the Griggs family and are pleased to have supported them in this incredible brand’s journey.”

Starting as a modest work-wear boot in 1901, Dr Martens have evolved into an iconic fashion staple – known for its ‘rebellious self-expression’ – having sold more than 11 million pairs of boots in more than 60 countries worldwide.

Stephen Griggs said: “We’re very proud of our family’s brand and how by working with the right people it has transformed into a global icon.

“We’ve got a long-standing relationship with the Shakespeare Martineau team – they have always been as invested in our success as we are.”

Deal

Shakespeare Martineau advises £35 million property scheme sale

The London and Midlands real estate and corporate legal teams at Shakespeare Martineau have advised on the multi-million pound sale of a significant Mayfair prime residential and commercial property scheme.

Acting on behalf of London and Monaco investors represented by London based development company REDD, the 10,000 sq ft 82 Mount Street scheme was purchased by a private international investor, within days of the sale campaign.

Shakespeare Martineau has acted throughout the project, including the original purchase in 2019, the reverse surrenders of the commercial elements of the scheme, and providing construction and tax advice. The property, on the corner of Balfour Place and Mount Street, achieved planning permission for a luxury mixed-use development, including four apartments, ground floor retail boutique and lower ground floor offices.

The sale has completed just prior to the start of the construction programme.

Simon Robinson partner at Shakespeare Martineau, led the property and corporate legal advice with Jayne Meakin assisting on construction matters. Shakespeare Martineau has extensive experience in the property sector and is working with REDD on several significant prime and super prime projects in London.

Simon Robinson said: “This matter represents a significant step and statement in the market for REDD and their expansion from their Monaco base. We are delighted to have been with them throughout the journey and it proves that the right assets, well thought through and especially in the London market, continue to provide opportunities for investors and owners alike.

Russell Smithers, managing director of the REDD operation in London says: “The sale of 82 Mount Street represents a very good deal for our investors. Value was added when REDD assembled the freehold site and designed a scheme which was granted planning consent in early 2020. We are happy to exit now and will recycle the cash generated from the sale to invest in new projects in Prime Central London.

“Shakespeare Martineau has been with us from the beginning and has provided advice not only in the legal aspects but strategically, as well as assisting with project management. To have such an all-round service has been excellent and vital to the development.

Contact us

For further advice on the options available to you as a landlord or as a tenant, please contact Simon Robinson or another real estate team in your local office.

Midlands dealmakers advise on £33 million sale of Addmaster to Swedish company Polygiene

Staffordshire company Addmaster, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of antibacterial additives, has been sold to Swedish company Polygiene for £33 million, with the support of Midlands-based Shakespeare Martineau and Bracebridge Corporate Finance.

Addmaster supplies performance-enhancing additives for the plastic, paper, textiles, paints and coatings industry.  The acquisition brings together Addmaster’s expertise in antimicrobial technologies on hard surfaces with Polygiene’s long-standing reputation in odour control and antiviral solutions for textiles.

Addmaster’s Biomaster technology, designed to prevent bacteria and viruses growing, has been in high demand and has been adopted in a diverse range of applications. In a recent development, the technology has also completed extensive testing and has been found to be effective on both porous and non-porous substrates against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. This means that Biomaster can give up to 99% protection just four hours after it has been added to products, preventing any bacteria or virus growing on everyday items.

Addmaster founder, Paul Morris said: “This is a fantastic deal for our business and gives us the financial backing and global resources we need to maximise the potential of our products, including the world-leading antimicrobial protection offered by Biomaster.

Paul added: “I’m hugely grateful to the support of Shakespeare Martineau and Bracebridge Corporate Finance who have been with us every step of the way.

Andy Moore, managing director at Bracebridge Corporate Finance commented: “We have worked with Addmaster over the last 3 years and have seen the business go from strength to strength. The sale to Polygiene is the result of many years’ hard work from Paul and his team. We advised the shareholders on the sale, project managing and negotiating the deal with Polygiene, working closely with Shakespeare Martineau on the legal aspects.

Duncan James said: “We are delighted to have worked with Addmaster and its shareholders to achieve an outstanding result for the business. The deal is a superb example of a Midlands business being advised by Midlands advisors on an international transaction.

Deal

Corporate team advises on global medtech joint venture

Our corporate team has supported medical equipment businesses Scientific Magnetics and Tecmag – part of Avingtrans – with their upcoming merger with Magnetica.

The merger will mark the fifteenth deal we’ve supported and completed on for Avingtrans in 13 years.

Magnetica, an Australian medtech and engineering company specialising in next-generation MRI technologies, plans to merge with Scientific Magnetics – a UK-based business that designs, manufactures, tests and installs bespoke superconducting magnet systems – and its US subsidiary Tecmag, which manufactures instrumentation for NMR, NQR and MRI markets.

Contracts have now exchanged, but completion of the merger is conditional upon Magnetica’s shareholder approval at a general meeting on January 29.

Subject to completion, Avingtrans, which owns a majority stake in Scientific Magnetics, will become the majority shareholder in the combined business, which will continue to be known as Magnetica.

The combined business will form a key part of Avingtrans’ Medical and Industrial Imaging division moving forward. Scientific Magnetics and Tecmag will become wholly owned subsidiaries of Magnetica.

In addition to the deal, Avingtrans, which designs, manufactures and supplies critical components, modules, systems and associated services to the energy, medical and industrial sectors, will also be investing in the newly formed business, to fund new MRI product development and commercialisation activities.

Keith Spedding, partner and business transaction and growth specialist led the deal. He said: “We’re seeing a lot of activity in the medtech market. It’s a fast moving, innovative industry with its products and services growing in demand. This merger is an excellent fit for all involved and will create a powerhouse of potential as they look to increase accessibility to high quality medical imaging around the world.

“Working with Avingtrans plc for more than a decade has been an exciting journey – we’ve seen them grow rapidly and we have been able to support this growth with our international, corporate and medtech expertise.”

Steve McQuillan, CEO of Avingtrans, said: “The team at Shakespeare Martineau have played a crucial part in our growth success over the years – they understand our business, they understand our sector and help us take a bigger picture view of the market.

“We believe this merger offers real potential to accelerate the planned move up the value chain in what is a highly specialised and integrated, international medical-imaging market.”

Armstrong Logistics Makes Major Acquisition At Magna Park Lutterworth

Armstrong Logistics has acquired one of the largest units at Magna Park in Lutterworth with the legal support of the Leicester-based law firm Shakespeare Martineau.

Armstrong Logistics has taken a second warehouse measuring 377,070 square feet - at an initial investment of more than £5 million - in order to meet the contractual demands of its growing clients.  

The significant investment includes a 15.5 year lease commitment and an initial fit-out valued in excess of £2.5 million. The unit also includes 568 space two storey car-park and fuel refilling facility. 

Shakespeare Martineau supported this major transaction by providing full investigation of title and advice on the terms, as well as negotiation and completion of all of the property documentation. 

Commercial real estate expert and legal director at the firm, Jonathan Fear said: “My colleague Ben Darlow and I had to work under a strict timescale, co-ordinating a number of stakeholders to get this deal to completion. A transaction of this nature would typically take between eight and 12 weeks without any hold-ups. We successfully completed this deal in just five weeks, as required by our client. 

“Given the time pressures, it was crucial that we provided the Armstrong Logistics team with detailed, legal expertise and analysis to enable them to make informed, timely, commercial decisions.  

“This is a significant milestone for Armstrong Logistics and is a positive example of how the retail food logistics sector has met the challenges of lockdown and successfully expanded in spite of the recession. Kudos goes to Armstrong Logistics for this fantastic achievement. 

Our involvement in such a significant deal is further indication of our expertise in the logistics sector. Our local knowledge and regional office location puts us in prime position to support deals within the East Midlands, nationally pre-eminent logistics hub.”     

Finance and commercial director, Marcus Fischer from Armstrong Logistics said: “We’re thrilled to have completed on a second site at Magna Park. This is our fourth site across the UK. We had to act fast on the opportunity at Magna Park, and couldn’t have done it without Jonathan and Ben. 

For us this deal has meant a huge amount to the business – and marks a key point in our 30 year history.” 

Undergoing major expansion, Magna Park is considered one of Europe’s premier logistics location.

Shakespeare Martineau supports the sale of head office of Nottingham software firm

The Nottingham real estate team has supported Three Peaks Nottingham Limited with the sale of 1 Mere Way on Ruddington Field Business Park, to Corum XL for £6.3m.

Positioned at the entrance to Ruddington Fields Business Park, the 28,696 sq. ft. building is the head office of Nottingham software firm Ideagen. The office space is let to them on a 15-year lease.

The business park is just six miles to the south of Nottingham, with great access and connections to the city centre via the A60. Other occupiers of the premier development include Experian, Vision Express, Capita, Emtec College and Quotient Clinical.

Advising Three Peaks Nottingham Limited, Peter Dilks and Hannah Awcock advised on all legal aspects of the deal, helped to ensure that the timetable for completion was achieved.

Peter Dilks, partner in our real estate team, said: “The completion of this sale is positive news for Nottingham and indicates the real estate market is starting to bounce back. Although COVID-19 may have initially put a temporary halt on investment, the return of deals of this scale shows that there are still plenty of opportunities within the real estate market in the East Midlands.

“We’ve been working with Three Peaks Nottingham for many years and feel privileged to be able to continue to support them with their future plans.”

Michael Johal, director of Three Peaks Nottingham, added: “We are very pleased to have concluded this sale swiftly, even within a climate of uncertainty, as well as concluding the lease term during the COVID-19 disruption. This underscores the fact there is demand for property investment and a good outlook for well-located assets.”

Corporate team secures a six figure investment for clinical decision support system company

AI medical software company secures six-figure investment from future fund scheme

Shakespeare Martineau has secured a six-figure investment for clinical decision support system company Deontics, through the government-backed Coronavirus Future Fund scheme.

Deontics – based in London - produces highly sophisticated artificial intelligence based software platforms and applications to support medical professionals make clinical decisions. Deontics software has for some time provided key support to cardiac specialists at the Royal Liverpool Hospital and in April 2020 they developed the first executable Covid 19 treatment pathway.

This recent investment will see the company develop its technology and access new markets around the world.

Acting on behalf of Deontics, Shakespeare Martineau advised on the application and the corporate structure ahead of the investment, successfully securing a convertible loan from the Future Fund.

Duncan James said: “The coronavirus Future Fund is a government backed scheme that provides matched funding of between £125,000 and £5 million and is a great opportunity for businesses to boost their income and support development and growth.

“Deontics is a truly exciting business and we were pleased to help the company secure this new investment, which will help them to take their world leading technology to a wider market.”

Deontic’s chairman James Whitticase said: “This latest investment is an important stage in the development of our business and gives us a firm foundation for the next stage of our growth.”

The deadline to apply for the coronavirus Future Funds scheme is end of September 2020.
