Our Deals

Through the eyes of Daniel Braun

We have advised a syndicate of banks (including Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, ABN Amro, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Jefferies, DMBH, ING and Pekao) on the offering and listing on Euronext Amsterdam of shares of InPost, an Advent-backed company and the leading e-commerce enablement platform in Poland. 

Based on the offer price, the implied market capitalisation of the Company is EUR 8 billion. The total value of the offering amounts to EUR 3.2 billion (including the exercise of the over-allotment option), which represents the largest ever European Tech IPO, the largest ever CEE IPO, the largest European Private Equity IPO since 2015 and the largest Amsterdam IPO since 2016. 

The Deal

"I was involved in advising BlackRock LTPC and Creed Chairman, Javier Ferrán on the all-cash sale of luxury fragrance house Creed, to Kering, the French luxury house that already owns many luxury brands, including the likes of Gucci, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta and many more." I was working on this transaction while sitting within the London Private Equity practice, working alongside Christopher Sullivan, Shimin Lee, Lianne Mizrahi, Megan Hodges, Lewis Barton, Haeyoung Kim and Kingsley Duru. That said, throughout the transaction, we collaborated extensively with other key practice areas within the firm including Finance, Intellectual Property, Antitrust, Incentives, not to mention our counterparts in different jurisdictions including our offices in Paris and New York.

Hear from Daniel Braun

"Throughout the life of the deal, I was involved in drafting sections of key acquisition documents. I took a leading role in drafting and progressing the ancillary transactional documentation. Advancing the due diligence process was another key role which I undertook on this deal. As a cohesive team, we reviewed extensive documentation and applied the necessary redactions to safeguard any sensitive information. Working alongside the client and management to meet their specific needs was an enriching and enlightening experience. To commemorate this achievement, we all shared a moment of camaraderie at the signing drinks once the final signatures were in place. I truly enjoyed working with the Private Equity team and the wider Clifford Chance network, together with the client, to conclude this transaction. ."
