ABL helps leading sports company raise capital

Michael Dodge

Arnold Bloch Leibler, along with a Sydney boutique firm, had the main legal roles in an IPO for a sports technology company whose clients include the AFL and NRL premiers.

Firms: Arnold Bloch Leibler (Catapult Group International); Greenwich Legal (joint lead managers)

Deal: Catapult Group IPO

Value: $66 million

Area: Capital markets

Key Players: ABL’s team was led by Melbourne-based partner Michael Dodge (pictured), with support from senior associate Jason van Grieken. “Catapult’s story bears testimony to the strength of Australia’s technological innovation,” said Dodge. “The company can now look forward to the next exciting phase in its evolution as a leading player in global sports analytics.” Sydney M&A and capital markets boutique Greenwich Legal advised the joint lead managers – Baillieu Holst and Bell Potter – with Greenwich Legal director Tim Turton leading his firm’s team. Greenwich Legal was founded in 2007 by Michael Greig, former head of the capital markets group at Allens

Deal Significance: The Catapult Group lays claim to having invented GPS tracking for team sports. Its clients include AFL premier Hawthorn, NRL premier South Sydney, the Dallas Cowboys and the Australian women’s football team.
