Pinsent Masons advises Tan Chong on its tender offer to purchase shares in Zero Co. Ltd

07 Jul 2014 | 10:58 am |

International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised Tan Chong International Limited (“Tan Chong”), a Hong Kong Main Board listed company, on its tender offer to purchase an approximate 28% interest in Zero Co. Ltd (“Zero”), a Tokyo Stock Exchange listed company, for approximately HK$305 million (equivalent to approximately £23 million). Such interests acquired together with interests previously acquired by Tan Chong gives Tan Chong an aggregate current holding of approximately 51% interests in Zero.

The acquisition constituted a Major Transaction for Tan Chong under the Hong Kong Listing Rules. Pinsent Masons advised Tan Chong on the Hong Kong legal and regulatory aspects of the transaction.

Both Tan Chong and Zero are engaged in the automobile-related business. Tan Chong, through the tender offer, is expected to further expand its business in the ASEAN region through the establishment of a closer capital and business alliance with Zero.

The Pinsent Masons Team advising on the deal was led by Corporate Partner Kenneth Chong, assisted by Senior Associate Denise Chan and Trainee Solicitor Kris Cheung in the Hong Kong office.
