A team of lawyers from Curtis Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle’s Milan and London offices assisted Italian-listed ticketing company Best Union Company SpA on its acquisition of London-based Enta Ticketing Solutions Limited.
Best Union is a leading player in the global ticketing sector. The acquisition is a key part of its expansion strategy and follows its recent expansion into France, where it manages ticketing for The Louvre in Paris.
Enta Ticketing is active in the UK, the Middle East and Scandinavia and is the market leader in London's West End theatre ticketing industry. The transaction was a buy-out from Bracken Holdings Limited which is part of London-based private equity firm Octopus Investments. It closed on July 19 and was announced to the markets on July 20.
The Curtis team was led by partners Ian Tully in Milan and Winta Jarvis in London and included associates Maurizio Iacobellis and Jamie Ogilvie, and trainees Mauro Teresi and Dario Ciapponi.
