Gordon Brothers, the global advisory, restructuring and investment firm, has arranged and underwritten a financing package for private equity firm Allegro Funds to support its acquisition of Toll Global Express in Australia and New Zealand.
The financing package for the Australian business features a A$150 million comprehensive finance package. The New Zealand borrowers will receive a NZ$10 million facility.
Gordon Brothers performed multiple roles to support Allegro Funds in this complex and transformative acquisition, including financing, valuation and asset remarketing. The firm worked collaboratively and quickly to structure a bespoke, tailor-made financing package for Allegro Funds and valued over 11,000 assets.
“We’re pleased to support our partner Allegro Funds in this complex transaction,” said Tim Stewart, Head of Australia at Gordon Brothers. “This serves as a testament to our cross-team skills as we operated across multiple Gordon Brothers businesses to provide a customised solution for the client.”
“We’ve worked collaboratively with Gordon Brothers previously, which made the firm the natural partner of choice,” said Adrian Loader, Allegro Funds. “They have demonstrated their proven track record in supporting complex turnarounds and partnering to provide custom financing.”
