Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Limited recommended takeover bid for Bradken

Currently advising Japan's Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Limited on its recommended A$976.1 million takeover bid for Bradken. Bradken's complex capital and debt structure required that the offer terms be carefully constructed. Particular attention was focused on the treatment of redeemable convertible preference shares Bradken issued in July 2015, the complex share performance rights Bradken has on issue and Bradken's multiple layers of significant debt, the repayment of which is accelerated on a change in control. In addition, as Bradken has substantial business operations outside Australia, the legal due diligence was extensive and meant that the nature and scope of foreign regulatory conditions to the offer had to be carefully considered.
