Arnold Bloch Leibler advised the Victorian-based Anstat Group on its acquisition by SAI Global Limited. SAI Global is a leading business publishing, compliance, training and assurance organisation with offices in Australasia, Europe and North America, while Anstat is a provider of information and risk management solutions to the legal, property and corporate compliance markets. It is also the official publisher of hard copy legislation for the Victorian and Federal governments.

The acquisition will increase the business base of SAI Global’s publishing division, provide a powerful entry point to the compliance risk management market and bring a well-respected brand with an established customer base in-house. Arnold Bloch Leibler technology partner Michael Dodge led the firm’s team, which included Steven Humphries. John Williamson-Noble of Gilbert + Tobin acted for SAI Global.

Coudert Brothers advised CHAMP on its recent capital raising, which made $950 million for the CHAMP Buyout II Fund, an indication of the strong global interest in Australian private equity funds. Coudert partner Mark Williamson said the CHAMP II Fund would target businesses in manufacturing, services, the media, energy services and mining services.

Williamson, who worked on the transaction with a Sydney-based team including partner Trish Williams and Chris Yip, said international capital raisings for Australian funds involved compliance with laws of many foreign jurisdictions.
