International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised property investment company Redefine International on its dual-listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).
A London Stock Exchange (LSE) listed company, Redefine will become dual-listed in London and Johannesburg which is expected to complete on 28 October.
The secondary listing comes as Redefine intends, as previously announced, to convert to a UK Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) following the amendment of the rules earlier in the year for conversion of real estate investment vehicles.
Lead partner and corporate real estate partner at Pinsent Masons, Howard Gill, said: "For Redefine this is another crucial part of its development and strategy for growth over the coming years. The secondary listing will provide further potential for a broader investor base and further liquidity in Johannesburg and London.
"This deal and our ongoing work with Redefine demonstrates Pinsent Masons' international expertise and knowledge of the real estate sector."
Pinsent Masons has a longstanding relationship with the property investment company. Last month Howard Gill led a team advising the company on its Euros189 million acquisition of a shopping centre portfolio in Germany, following on from advising on the LSE placing and open offer to raise £128 million last year.
Howard Gill was assisted by corporate associates Sarah Flinn and Emily Mort.
