AdeB assists the debt providers in connection to the acquisition of Lindorff

The investment fund Nordic Capital acquires the majority of the debt collection company Lindorff from the funds Investor and Altor for EUR 2.1 billion. Altor will keep a minority stake.

The investment is subject to approval by the relevant authorities and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The acquisition is primarily financed by a EUR 1.45 billion high yield bond issue, which is the largest bond issue in the Nordic Countries so far in 2014.

AdeB has assisted the underwriters to the bond issue (Nordea, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs) on instructions by Ropes & Gray.

AdeBs team has been led by Trond Kildal, partner of our bank & financing group, assisted by senior lawyer Atle Stensrud, senior lawyer Eyvind Sandvik (tax), associate Lars Tomasson and associate Andreas Rabe.
