This article reports that British firm Allen & Overy and Linklaters have played key roles on a landmark Egyptian IPO, the first for almost half a decade. The deal saw bathroom manufacturer Lecico make an issue of ordinary shares on the Cairo and Alexandria Stock Exchanges and global depository notes on the London Stock Exchange. The total value of the offering was in excess of 150m dollars. A& O London corporate partner Pervez Akhtar won the issuer role after advising on the 1997 acquisition of Lecico by a joint venture between Finnish company Sanitec Corp. and members of the Lebanese Gargour family. Sanitec was then acquired by private equity house BC Partners, which has since sought to exit its investment.
