Howes Percival has acted for private equity firm the Cadman Capital Group on the acquisition of Lincolnshire-based specialist printing and packaging firms Norpol Packaging Limited and Burbridge Packaging (Louth) Limited.
The Howes Percival team was led by Miles Barnes (corporate) and was supported by Lucy Lord (commercial property), Graham Irons and Sobia Ahmad (employment), Rob Starr (regulatory) and Sam Moore (tax).
The team carried out an extensive legal due diligence process and advised on the key transaction documents. The deal was progressed throughout the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown and is one of several completed by the Howes Percival Corporate team during this difficult period.
Commenting on the deal, Miles Barnes, corporate solicitor at Howes Percival said,
“We’re delighted to have advised Cadman Capital on these acquisitions. The transactions took place during lockdown – which presented some interesting challenges.
“Despite remote working and social distancing, we have continued to advise our clients on high value, complex transactions and help them achieve fantastic results. Although there is a great deal of uncertainty around what the next few months will hold for the economy, there continues to be a robust M&A market for UK SMEs. In particular, private equity firms and companies backed by them continue to actively invest in high quality British businesses.”
