Weil Advised Access Industries Group on its Takeover Offer for Perform Group plc

Weil advised Access Industries Inc., a privately owned industrial group, in its $691 million acquisition of all of the shares that it did not already own of Perform Group plc, a marketer of multi-media sports content across multiple platforms.

Weil has advised the privately-owned industrial group Access Industries on a number of M&A matters previously.

The Weil team was led by Peter King, assisted by partners Simon Lyell and Ian Hamilton and associates Max Oppenheimer and Tayyibah Arif.

This transaction adds to a busy Q3 for Weil’s global Corporate practice, leading on transactions across the deal spectrum, including most recently advising Kinder Morgan in its $70 billion acquisition of KMP, KMR and EPB in the US, and in Europe advising Lone Star on the sale of German Düsseldorfer Hypothekenbank. Earlier in the year, a joint London/Asia team advised FTSE 250 company RPC Group plc on its acquisition of Hong Kong-based ACE Corporation.
