KPMG Law has advised the major shareholder of Australia’s leading specialist data and analytics consulting firm, Servian, on a transaction to partner with Adamantem Capital in a deal aimed at pursuing significant expansion opportunities.
KPMG Law was part of an integrated KPMG team that acted on the transaction. KPMG Law advised on all legal aspects of the transaction including the Transaction Documents with Adamantem Capital. KPMG Corporate Finance was corporate finance adviser to the transaction and KPMG Tax provided the tax advice.
David Morris, leader of KPMG Law’s M&A practice, said: “We are delighted to have acted on this significant transaction. The Servian team has done an outstanding job in building the company over the last decade and this partnership with a group of the calibre of Adamantem Capital will provide an exciting platform for the future growth of Servian.”
“This transaction reflects the strong M&A activity we are seeing in the technology sector and the high level of interest that private equity funds have in investing in the sector. The transaction also showcased not only our strong M&A legal capability but importantly the benefits of our integrated M&A offering at KPMG, which provides our clients with the advantages associated with only needing to use one advisor on a transaction rather than having to manage multiple service providers”, he added.
The KPMG Law team was led by David Morris and supported by Directors Paul Wentworth and Paul Mayson. Head of M&A, Peter Turner, advised on the corporate finance aspects of the transaction, while Tax Partner Len Nicita provided tax advice with support from Stephanie Schaefer.
This is one of a number of M&A transactions that KPMG Law has advised on in the last 12 months.
