Fladgate advises on £20m takeover of Blanc Brasserie

Our team: John Forde, David Robinson, Sam Tye

Fladgate LLP has advised Abriand Limited (Abriand), a company established by management to acquire, by way of a takeover offer, the entire issued share capital of Brasserie Bar Co Limited, which owns the Blanc Brasserie premium casual dining business and The White Pub Company gastropub business. In turn, Abriand was funded through a £20m debt and equity investment made by Core Capital.

Corporate partner David Robinson led the Fladgate team which included solicitors Sam Tye and John Forde.

In addition to funding the acquisition, the £20m raised will go toward expanding the brasserie chain, established by Raymond Blanc 15 years ago, and expanding the fledgling gastropub business predominately in and around London. Mr Blanc still works closely on the menus.
