Two magic circle firms have secured lead roles on Sainsbury’s £445m capital raising.
Linklaters corporate partner Mark Stamp advised longstanding client Sainsbury’s on the deal while Allen & Overy partners Mark Dighero and Jonathan Mellor advised the banks UBS and Morgan Stanley.
The deal involves a convertible bond. Sainsbury’s aim to use the capital raised to expand the business by 15 per cent by March 2011.
Linklaters has advised Sainsbury’s for some time. In 2006 The Lawyer reported that the magic circle firm had advised the retailer on its £2.07bn commercial mortgage-backed securitisation (CMBS).
The proceeds of that deal were used to refinance £1.7bn worth of unsecured bonds and to make a £350m contribution to the company’s pension fund.
Linklaters and A&O were unavailable for comment.
