Amazon Filters advised by Herrington Carmichael on high-value share buyback

Herrington Carmichael’s corporate team led by Head of Corporate, Yavan Brar, has advised Amazon Filters, one of Europe’s largest independent manufacturers of bespoke filter housings and cartridges, on its transaction facilitating the exit of BGF Investments from its investment in the company.

Amazon Filters is a leading international manufacturer with presence across a number of European jurisdictions. Founded in 1985, the company has grown to provide tailored filtration solutions across multiple industries including oil & gas, pharmaceuticals & healthcare and food & beverage.

The transaction involved working alongside KPMG to agree a steps plan which included a number of complex legal and tax requirements, prior to completing the share buyback, exiting BGF. Funding was provided by HSBC’s Structured Finance team, with security across the group’s UK and European subsidiary companies.

The Herrington Carmichael team was led by Managing Partner and Head of Corporate, Yavan Brar, with the assistance of:

Matthew Lea, Legal Director, assisting on the corporate elements;
Chris Gemson, Solicitor, assisting on the banking elements; and
Michelle Lamberth, Senior Paralegal, assisting on the corporate governance elements.

“A sincere thank you to Yavan and the entire Herrington Carmichael team. You are an exceptionally committed group of individuals. Looking back, it’s impressive what we managed to accomplish over such a short period of time, dealing with a variety of issues that came up during the process. Working with Yavan, Chris, Matt and Michelle was a pleasure. Thanks to all of you as well as the many others working behind the scenes.”
