Corporate and M&A partners Jeremy Leibler and Scott Phillips led the transaction with Banking & Finance partner Genevieve Sexton, and were assisted by senior associate Vidushee Deora, lawyer Max Grunwald and law graduate Kaitie Boyd.
Scott Phillips commented: “We’re pleased to have advised Redcape on this important transaction. Redcape has a very experienced leadership team, a high-quality portfolio and has a consistent track record of delivering strong operational performance. We wish Redcape continued success as they embark on the next stage of their growth strategy.”
As reported in The Australian, the decision to delist follows four years on the ASX and aims to provide securityholders a greater potential to exit their investment at close to Redcape’s net asset value. Redcape’s Chief Executive Officer, Dan Brady said: “We’ve had a lot of terrific support from our lenders, we’ve had support by virtue of outstanding performance for our communities. This allows the organisation to get on with growing, but also gives security holders a terrific outcome either way they choose.”
The delisting will provide shareholders with the option to remain invested in Redcape or participate in an off-market buyback. The proposal is set to go to a securityholder vote on 10 September 2021.
