The King & Wood Mallesons team, led by partners Shannon Finch and Mark McFarlane, acted for the Arrangers (Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Capital Markets Division) and Morgan Stanley Australia Securities Limited), on regulatory and structuring matters, and for the Joint Lead Managers (ANZ Securities Limited, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Capital Markets Division), Goldman Sachs Australia Pty Ltd, Macquarie Capital (Australia) Limited, Morgan Stanley Australia Securities Limited, RBS Equity Capital Markets (Australia) Limited and Westpac Banking Corporation) on offer management arrangements.
They were assisted by Senior Associates Pola Collins, Paul Mayson and Solicitor Nilofar Ali.
CBA’s offer included a reinvestment offer which enables eligible PERLS IV holders to invest in PERLS VI by selling some or all of their PERLS IV though an on-market buy-back facility and automatically reinvesting the proceeds in PERLS VI.
King & Wood Mallesons also acted for Morgan Stanley (an Arranger) in its role as the on-market buying broker in connection with the reinvestment offer and as resale broker in connection with the proposed resale of the remaining PERLS IV on 31 October 2012.
