Capital raising

Anderson Lloyd advises a broad range of clients on capital raisings.  We have specialist knowledge of regulated offers under the Financial Markets Conduct Act (FMCA), including advising on product disclosure statements and the associated due diligence process.  For listed clients, our expertise also covers advising on the applicable NZX listing rules.

In addition, we regularly assist clients with private capital raisings.  This includes advising on the relevant exclusions under the FMCA as well as assisting with the preparation of information memoranda and other documentation.

  • contracts for the supply of goods and services
  • joint ventures
  • franchising arrangements
  • outsourcing contracts
  • standard terms of trade
  • licensing contracts.

Mergers and acquisitions

Our team of M&A specialists is valued by clients for its commercial and pragmatic approach and commitment to ‘getting the deal done’.

Our expertise covers due diligence (for both vendors and purchasers), drafting and negotiating sale and purchase documentation, advising on funding and assisting with the completion and implementation of transactions. We also work closely with clients readying their businesses for sale.

Regardless of the size of the transaction, Anderson Lloyd is able to harness its industry-specific knowledge and experience to provide tailored and effective advice.

We appreciate that transactional work often requires a range of specialist advice (e.g. in relation to financing, employment, intellectual property and regulatory matters), and so we involve appropriate experts from within the broader Anderson Lloyd team to provide a seamless delivery to our clients.

Private equity and venture capital

Our team has significant experience advising on a broad range of private equity transactions, from early stage investments to growth capital transactions and leveraged buy-outs.

Our expertise covers acquisitions (including bolt-ons), divestments, equity and debt funding arrangements and the structuring of management incentive arrangements.
