With the assistance of MinterEllison’s global team, Halma has acquired the Ampac group for $135 million.

Firm: MinterEllison (Halma)

Deal: MinterEllison acted for London Stock Exchange and Halma plc on its acquisition of the Ampac group of companies.

Value: $135 million


Area: M&A

Key players: MinterEllison’s team was led by partner Bryn Davis and associate Kayla Giudicatti and included partners Matthew Glenn, Matthew Knox, Elissa Romanin, Paul Ng, Michael Wallin, John Conlan, Nada Raphael, Cameron Charlton and Mark Williams.

Deal significance: Halma, a FTSE 100-listed company, is a technology group focused on health, safety and environment which operates across process safety, medical and infrastructure safety. Halma employs over 6,000 people across 20 countries with major operations in Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific.

MinterEllison utilised its teams across Australia, New Zealand and the UK to guide Halma through all stages of the transaction. The transaction involved complex cross-jurisdictional, hybrid share and asset sale structure which drew on the expertise of MinterEllison in M&A, tax, competition, property and intellectual property.

The acquisition, completed on a cash and debt free basis, will extend the geographic footprint and strengthen the intellectual property of Halma’s safety sector.


Mr Davis said: “MinterEllison was thrilled to assist Halma in the deal which was the culmination of a 30-year relationship between Halma and the Ampac group.”
