US$50 Million Capital Raise for China Focused Consumer Goods and Services Company

Our Corporate Finance Practice and Private Equity Practice advised a private fund with US$700 million of assets under management in connection with a venture capital investment into a consumer goods and services holding company and the raising of US$60 million through multiple rounds of private placements.

We guided the client through:

  • the restructuring of the corporate group into an offshore limited partnership for the purpose of onboarding clients into the investment opportunity and the preparation of a limited partnership agreement (“LPA”)

  • the structuring of the investment offer, including terms of investment into the limited partnership, both in the initial capital raise as well as each subsequent round of financing

  • the acquisition of 2 operating businesses as consideration in exchange for an interest in the limited partnership, including legal due diligence on the target operating businesses and the preparation and negotiation of the sale and purchase agreements (“SPAs”)

  • the preparation of an executive share option scheme

  • various issues relating to the possible listing of the business
