Shearman & Sterling is advising the financing sources to a consortium of investors (including Stephen Pagliuca, Managing Partner and Co-owner of the Boston Celtics and Co-Chairman of Bain Capital, one of the leading investment funds in the world) in relation to their co-investment Atalanta BC, one of the top Serie A clubs based in Bergamo, Italy.
The agreement provides for the entry of the new investors with a 55% total stake in the share capital of La Dea Srl which is the holding vehicle for Atalanta BC. The Percassi family will retain a 45% stake in Atalanta BC.
This builds on the Shearman & Sterling Leveraged Finance team’s continued involvement in top-tier leveraged finance transactions in Europe. We are very glad to have supported the financing sources and the consortium of investors on this landmark transaction.
