Curtis advises on the sale of 85% stake in the ENTERTAINER
Speakers: Jeremy Miocevic, Alastair Holland, Patrick Callinan

 

Dubai, May 16, 2018 – Curtis has advised the owners on the sale of an 85% stake in The ENTERTAINER to leading Bahrain-based investment group, GFH Financial Group B.S.C., whose operations are focused in the GCC, North Africa and India.

Curtis represented the sellers in a transaction that will result in the existing financial investors’ full exit from the business. The Founder and Chairman, Donna Benton, will remain a key shareholder and retain an executive management role, contributing to the vision and growth of the business alongside GFH.

The Curtis Team included Partners Jeremy Miocevic and Alastair Holland and Counsel Patrick Callinan. Jeremy Miocevic said “We’re delighted for our clients. It gives a special satisfaction to advise a client during its business journey from its earliest days as an SME through successfully achieving growth capital and finally to its position as a household name in the market, and a very successful exit for the shareholders.  We are proud to have been involved in such a significant transaction in Dubai and with a client that is such a great locally-born success story.  Congratulations to all concerned.”
