Moelis buys into Aus hotel group

Deal, acquire, buy

Investment company Moelis Australia has been advised on an agreement to acquire an Australian hotel group.

Firms: K&L Gates (Moelis Australia); Arnold Bloch Leibler (Redcape Hotel Group)

Deal: Moelis Australia reached an agreement to acquire Redcape Hotel Group.

Value: $677 million

Area: M&A

Key players: The K&L Gates team advising Moelis was led by partner Hal Lloyd (pictured), and included partners Matthew Watts, Diane Skapinker and Matthew Cridland; special counsel Brent Delaney, Vicki Aron, Zina Edwards and Ben Benson; and lawyers Jessica Tang, Mairead Murphy, Robyn Dimis and Edward Ryman.

Deal significance: Investment company Moelis Australia, a division of US-based Moelis & Company, has reached an agreement to acquire Redcape Hotel Group.

The acquisition is worth $677 million and is expected to increase Moelis Australia’s assets under management to $2.5 billion by the end of the year, according to a statement from K&L Gates.

The firm advised Moelis on all aspects of the acquisition and the establishment of the Moelis Australia Redcape Hotel Group.

“This is a highly strategic acquisition of one of Australia’s largest hotel groups by Moelis Australia, following its recent IPO,” said lead partner Hal Lloyd.

“K&L Gates has welcomed the opportunity to work again with Moelis Australia and congratulates Moelis on the transaction.”

The acquisition is expected to be completed this month.
