Houthoff (co-counsel to Kirkland&Ellis and Dechert LLP, M&A, VDD) advised Wyndham Worldwide Corp on the sale of its European vacation rental business (Landal part) to private equity firm Platinum Equity for approximately USD1.3 billion. This matter is particularly significant/complex because of the multi cross border VDD exercise which Houthoff coordinated for the Landal part of the transaction with multiple park concepts and the very significant real estate component due to the large number of parks operated by Landal over the various jurisdiction (85 in total). We further advised on the competition aspects of various bidders and coordinate and advise on the Dutch works council advice procedure. The client is a NY stock exchange-listed American hospitality company.
