Allens Arthur Robinson has advised the Queensland Government on the $6.7 billion initial public offering (IPO) of rail operator QR National, the second largest IPO ever conducted in Australia.

Brisbane-based partners John Greig and Erin Feros led the team advising the Queensland Government, which involved lawyers from the capital markets, competition, employment, structured finance and

privatisation groups, including partners Kylie Brown, Grant Anderson, Stuart McCulloch, Andrew Knox, Peter James, Jamie Wells and Jacqueline Downes.

The QR National IPO is the largest in Australia in a decade and the largest new Australian stock market listing since the privatisation of Telstra. QR National is Australia's largest rail freight operator and the world's largest rail transporter of coal from mines to ports for export markets.

Corporate partner Kylie Brown said the QR National IPO was also notable for occurring in an IPO market that has been largely closed for six months.

"It is too early to say whether this listing signals the re-opening of the market for IPOs. There are significant differences between the scale and type of business that is QR National and other privately owned businesses that may be waiting to IPO," she said.

"However, the scale of the listing may be viewed optimistically by some and encourage additional companies to test the market."

Mallesons Stephen Jaques and Minter Ellison acted for QR National, while Clayton Utz advised the five joint lead managers, which included Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch.
