Demerger and acquisition close with Clayton Utz’s help

Clayton Utz has helped in the successful implementation of two key transactions for a long-standing client.

The independent firm advised Gindalbie Metals Limited on the demerger of a subsidiary and the acquisition of the parent by its Chinese joint-venture partner. The deals, which were announced in March, valued Gindalbie at about $39m on a fully diluted basis, Clayton Utz said then.

Gindalbie first demerged Coda Minerals to Gindalbie shareholders before being acquired by Angang Group Hong Kong (Ansteel). Clayton Utz said that the transactions were implemented via two inter-conditional schemes of arrangement.
