GÖRG advises on German aspects of the sale of Kee Safety
[Hamburg, ] GÖRG has assisted Gateley Plc in advising safety solutions provider Kee Safety on its sale to Investcorp for £280m. The business was acquired as a secondary buy-out from private equity houses Dunedin and LDC.
Kee Safety is a leading global supplier of fall protection systems, guardrails and working at height safety equip-ment designed to separate people from hazards and has clients across more than 60 countries ranging from multi-national corporations to distributors and installers. It has established operations in ten countries, including China and the US.
As member of the group of international advisors coordinated by Gateley Plc, GÖRG’s advice mainly consisted in the preparation of a vendor legal due diligence report in relation to the German group companies. Use of vendor reporting enabled the bidder to move quickly to exchange and completion.
