Ogier advises in takeover bid

Posted: 02/02/2018

An Ogier team is advising events specialist UBM on the recommended takeover offer by events and publishing business Informa. The offer values UBM at £3.9bn.

Ogier is advising on the Jersey law aspects of the proposed deal, working with lead Counsel Linklaters. 

Led by Global Head of Corporate Simon Dinning, the Ogier team includes Managing Associate Alexander Curry, Senior Associate Saraid Taylor and Associate Chloe Watson-Hill. 

UBM is a longstanding client of Ogier and the deal, which comprises share and cash components, will be effected by way of a scheme of arrangement in Jersey. 

Originally a media conglomerate that owned the Daily Express newspaper and a portfolio of business-to-business magazines, UBM has streamlined into an exhibitions company with operations in Europe, the US and China.
