Carey Olsen advises Permira funds on US$5.8bn acquisition of Mimecast

Carey Olsen's corporate team in Jersey has advised Permira funds on the take-private of Nasdaq-listed Mimecast Limited, a leading email security and cyber resilience company.

The all-cash transaction, which was first announced in December last year, values Mimecast at US$5.8 billion and was effected by way of a Jersey law governed court sanctioned scheme of arrangement.

Working alongside lead counsel Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, the Carey Olsen team advising Permira funds on all Jersey-related corporate, financing and regulatory aspects of the acquisition was led by corporate partner Guy Coltman. The team also included corporate partner David Taylor, counsel David Allen, senior associate Katherine Tresca and associate Tsakani Kona as well as the firm's debt capital markets team, comprising corporate partner Simon Marks, counsel Matthew Ecobichon, and Hannah McLaughlin. Partner Andreas Kistler led on elements of the transaction involving the Jersey court.
