UK: Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw Frankfurt, Paris & London Combine To Advise RBS In 172.5 Million Euro Acquisition Financing
Last Updated: 9 April 2003

The Frankfurt office of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw Gaedertz have represented The Royal Bank of Scotland plc, Frankfurt Branch, as arranger, agent and lender in connection with a Euro 172.5 million senior and mezzanine financing of the acquisition of the Tetra business from Pfizer, Inc.

The buyer was a group of Triton funds. The deal was one of the biggest LBOs of the year in Germany.

The deal was completed in connection with the London, New York and Paris offices of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw and is a testament to the practice's ability to compete for and win large European financing transactions.

The Frankfurt office continues to be increasingly successful after recruiting three Finance partners from Clifford Chance Pünder in 2002. The Finance team was recently declared the 'most up and coming finance team in Frankfurt' by the German publication JUVE.

Frankfurt partner Manfred Heemann led the MBR&M team and was assisted by Andrew Bettwy, Philip O. Brandes, Thomas Bührmann, Simon Grieser, Antje Günther in Frankfurt, Jean-Pierre Lee in Paris, Nigel Wright and Angus MacDonald in London.

The Triton funds were represented by White & Case. Pfizer was represented by Weil, Gotshal & Manges.
