Representative Experience
Transactions
  • AP Alternative Assets, L.P. equity commitment of $100 million.  This transaction involved the purchase of Restricted Depository Shares to be listed on the Euronext market in Amsterdam.  The restricted nature of the shares and uncertainty related to the pricing upon listing were interesting facets of this transaction.
  • Apollo Investment Fund VI, L.P. equity commitment of $650 million and Oak Hill Capital Partners III, L.P. equity commitments of $775 million (four clients).  Both of these transactions required extensive negotiation due to the significant investments being made by the clients represented.  Additional effort was required to ensure that the most favorable terms, not just market terms, were being achieved through negotiations.
  • Audax Private Equity Fund III, L.P. equity commitments of $182 million (four clients) and New Mountain Partners III, L.P. equity commitments of $492 million (six clients).  Up to six different investors were involved in simultaneous negotiation of these two deals in a relatively short time period.  In the case of New Mountain, six investors closed on a total of over $490 million on the same day.  This broad array of clients required the negotiation of many client specific terms and conditions.
  • China Privatization Fund (Del), L.P. equity commitment of $100 million.  This transaction involved the establishment of a joint venture sponsored by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System.  Deals of this nature involve the establishment of a unique balance of rights and powers to ensure the establishment of a long-term successful business relationship.
