Ogier advises Atotech on US$498 million initial public offering

Ogier has advised Atotech Limited on its US$498 million initial public offering (IPO) on the New York Stock Exchange.

To celebrate its IPO, Atotech CEO Geoff Wild was invited to virtually ring the Opening Bell of the exchange, which values the company at US$3.7 billion.

The shares began trading on 4 February 2021 and the offering closed on 8 February 2021. The private equity firm Carlyle retains a significant stake in the business, which is a leader in specialty chemical technology and advanced electroplating solutions.

Working closely alongside Latham & Watkins LLP in Washington DC and New York, the Ogier team - led by partner Raulin Amy and assisted by managing associate Alexander Curry and associate Marcela Tudose - advised on the Jersey corporate and regulatory aspects of the deal.  

Corporate administration services were provided by Ogier Global whose team, led by Donna Laverty and assisted by Valentina Zammataro and Ross Middleditch, provided input on the pre-IPO restructuring and on the IPO itself.

Raulin said: "Following the listing of Clarivate in New York, not too long ago, it is great to see a further US listing using a Jersey company. This transaction involved a complex reorganisation pre IPO and it was invaluable having the support of our corporate administration team to provide a seamless service to our client."
