Houthoff advised PPLA Participations Ltd. ("PPLA") on the listing of European units on Euronext Amsterdam and the delisting of securities. Each unit represents one class A voting common share and two class B non-voting common shares of PPLA. The underlying shares are not separately tradable on Euronext Amsterdam. The listing and delisting were both effective on 29 December 2017. All units listed on Euronext Amsterdam are wholly interchangeable with the Brazilian units of PPLA listed and traded in Brazil on B3.
Houthoff, jointly with Skadden, advised Netherlands-incorporated TMF Group and its shareholders DH Private Equity Partners and management on the (ultimately aborted) IPO of TMF Group on the London Stock Exchange (premium listing segment) and subsequently on the sale of TMF Group to CVC Capital Partners for EUR 1.75 billion.
