The proceeds of the placing will be used to support Sanne’s strategy of accelerating its growth through selected acquisitions, including the acquisition of STRAIT Capital Company Ltd, a leading North American private equity and hedge fund administration business. This is the sixth transaction that Sanne has completed in the last 12 months.
The Latham team was led by London corporate partners Anna Ngo and Chris Horton, with associate Samantha Si. US securities law advice was provided by partner Ryan Benedict and capital markets lawyer Irene Pistotnik.
