Deal: Aventus Property Group launched a $700 million IPO with Macquarie as the sole lead manager.
Value: $700 million
Key players: The Allens team was led by partners Julian Donnan (pictured) and Robert Pick.
Deal significance: The float of Aventus Property Group was listed on the ASX last week, with a market capitalisation of close to $700 million. Macquarie was the sole lead manager for the IPO.
Partner and co-head of Allens’ capital market practice Julian Donnan said the Aventus IPO, along with the recent IPO of Link Administration Holdings, showed there were positive signs for the capital raising market in Australia.
“Both IPOs are significant and are strong evidence that, despite recent volatility, the capital markets remain robust for issuers with a strong underlying business,” he said.
