Allen & Gledhill, as transaction counsel, advised SATS Ltd. (“SATS”) on the S$1.82 billion acquisition of Promontoria Holding 243 B.V. (“WFS Acquisition”) and its S$798.9 million renounceable underwritten rights issue of new ordinary shares (“Rights Issue”).

Advising SATS as to Singapore law for the Rights Issue is Allen & Gledhill Partner Leonard Ching.

Advising SATS as to Singapore law for the WFS Acquisition are Allen & Gledhill Partners Christopher Ong, Christopher Koh, Michele Foo and Yap Lune Teng.

Advising SATS in terms of Singapore competition law for the WFS Acquisition is Allen & Gledhill Partner Scott Clements.
