16 February, 2015


Baker & McKenzie has advised J.P. Morgan and Macquarie as joint lead managers of Steadfast Group Limited’s USD 300 million placement and accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer to fund the acquisition of two underwriting and two broking businesses from QBE Insurance Group.


Partner Craig Andrade led the Baker & McKenzie team.


Commenting on the Offer, Craig Andrade said: “We were delighted to be instructedby J.P. Morgan and Macquarie. We’re seeing plenty of activity in the M&A pipeline and this transaction is a good start to 2015 and bodes well for the equities market being used to finance M&A deal flow in competitive auctions. The raising to support Steadfast will enable it to become one of the largest underwriting agencies in Australasia.”
