Practice notes

Andrew is the Senior Partner in our Durban office in the Corporate and Commercial practice group. He specialises in mergers and acquisitions in public and private companies. His recent focus has been on investments and disinvestments in sub-Saharan Africa.

Andrew's recent experience includes:

  • Advising Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. a company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, through its subsidiary, on the disposal of its property-owning interest in the Durban Hilton Hotel. The transaction comprised a gross purchase price of USD 33.85 million, subject to adjustments and additional recoveries. The transaction was recognised by DealMakers as the second highest by deal value in South Africa for unlisted deals in Q1 2018.
  • Advising The Hardy Boys Investment Trust and The Hardy Boys (Pty) Limited on the sale of shares to a WPP owned entity
  • Advising Imbewu Capital Partners and the Imbewu Consortium on the restructuring of a BEE investment in Hulamin Limited, a listed South African company.
  • Advising Oakbrook Holdings and Imbewu Capital Partners in a transaction supported by Nedbank Capital in which they acquired an initial shareholding in International Facility Services in South Africa and Mauritius. The companies have operations in South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique and the DRC. We have advised the same companies in acquiring shareholding in International Facility Services.
  • Advising public company RCL FOODS Limited, a leading African food producer operating across South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Uganda and Zambia. The advice primarily relates to the company's M&A activities in these regions.
