Clayton Utz, Freehills and Mallesons Stephen Jaques have advised on Super Retail Group's recently announced $610 million acquisition of Rebel Group Limited.

Mallesons advised Super Retail Group, which acquired Rebel Group (the owner of the Rebel Sport and A-Mart All Sports) from private equity group Archer Capital, advised by Freehills.

Clayton Utz acted for Macquarie and RBS, the joint underwriters, under the leadership of the firm's national head of equity capital markets, Sydney corporate M&A partner Stuart Byrne. Byrne was supported by Clutz corporate senior associates Stratos Karousos and Patricia Paton, corporate partner Geoff Hoffman and taxation partner Kirsten Fish.

Sydney corporate and M&A partner Andrew Pike led the Freehills team acting for Archer Capital.

The Mallesons team was led by Brisbane M&A partner John Humphrey, together with Meredith Paynter, Scott Heezen and Philip Ward of the firm's Sydney office.

Mallesons also advised Super Retail in relation to its $334 million pro-rata accelerated renounceable tradeable entitlement offer (PAITREO), the proceeds of which will be used to partially fund the acquisition.

Humphrey said the strategic acquisition would see Super Retail expand into the sporting goods sector.
