KZP Advises on Financing of Industrial Supplier Acquisition


Kochanski Zieba & Partners, working alongside Paul Hastings (Europe) LLP, Cuatrecasas, and Loyens & Loeff, has advised a consortium of banks consisting of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, HSBC, JPMorgan, BNP Paribas, and Lloyds as arrangers in respect to EUR 900 million of senior facilities to finance the acquisition of IPH Group by Brammer — a portfolio company of private equity firm Advent International.

The London office of Weil advised Brammer on both the financing and the acquisition itself. Willkie, Farr & Gallagher advised the sellers — PAI Partners — and Mayer Brown advised the management team.

The combination of Brammer with IPH will create a European distributor of industrial supplies with over EUR 2.1 billion in revenue.

The London-based Weil team was led by Partners Jonathan Wood and included Partners Tom Richards, Stephan Grauke, Jean Beauchataud, Barbara Jagersberger, and Olivier Jauffret.
