Clayton Utz and Freehills have each played a significant role in last week's Kathmandu IPO, with Freehills advising Macquarie and Goldman Sachs on their joint lead managing of the IPO, and Clayton Utz advising Kathmandu.

The pubic offering, which listed on the Australian Stock Exchange last Friday, saw the travel equipment and clothing specialist with 82 stores Australia wide selling around 196 million shares at $1.70 per share.

The funds were partially used to acquire underlying Kathmandu business from existing owners - Goldman Sachs, JBWere Principal Investment Area and Quadrant Private Equity.

Tony Sparks and Phillippa Stone led the Freehills team on the deal, with senior associate Faith Sing and solicitor Steve Drummond. Clayton Utz advised Kathmandu as issuer on the IPO, with lead partners Greg James - who also heads up the firm's ECM practice, and Stuart Byrne.

Sparks said the team was excited to have acted on another significant IP, especially following their recent involvement in the Myer float.
