Olswang acts for MergerID shareholders on completed disposal to Intralinks Holdings

Olswang has acted for the shareholders of MergerID on the completed disposal to NYSE-quoted Intralinks Holdings.

London-based MergerID was established by its founder Daniel Confino and the Mergermarket Group, a division of the Financial Times Group, publisher of the Financial Times and FT.com. The FT Group is a division of international media group Pearson.

MergerID is an online deal platform that brings together qualified mergers and acquisitions (M&A) professionals from around the world with matching deal criteria. The platform is designed to offer a secure and confidential way for M&A advisers to find and engage the best buyers and/or capital partners for their clients.

Intralinks Holdings is a global software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration systems. With this acquisition and a further US deal announced last week for PE-Nexus, Intralinks claims it can offer an end-to-end solution for managing the full lifecycle of strategic transactions, from deal preparation, marketing and sourcing through to due diligence and execution.

The Olswang team was led by Mark Bertram, assisted by corporate associate Julian Pitcher, tax partner Mark Joscelyne, tax associate Elizabeth Emerson, commercial associate Claire Morrisey, employment associate Nathalie Mitchell and corporate trainees Wendy Lee and David Clay.
