Ogier acts for Tarsus Group in £561 million takeover bid

Ogier is acting as Jersey counsel for Tarsus Group plc, the London-listed international business-to-business media and events group, on its recommended £561 million takeover by private equity firm Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP.

The transaction, which is to be carried out by way of a Jersey Scheme of Arrangement, is expected to complete in Q3 2019, following sanction by Jersey's Royal Court.

Partner Simon Dinning and managing associate Alexander Curry are working on the corporate aspects of the deal, and partner Nick Williams and managing associate James Angus are advising on the elements of the transaction involving Jersey's Royal Court.

The Ogier team is again working alongside lead counsel Macfarlanes.

Simon Dinning said: "We are pleased to be working with Macfarlanes on another major corporate M&A deal to be transacted by way of a Jersey Scheme of Arrangement."
