Transaction advice and roadmap for Virgin 2.0
Australia’s second largest airline, Virgin Australia, entered voluntary administration in early 2020 and the business was immediately placed on the international market for sale.
Leveraging both 333 Capital’s M&A expertise and KordaMentha’s aviation and restructuring experience, global private equity investor, Bain Capital, engaged us to provide transaction advice and a road map for acquiring Virgin out of voluntary administration.
With a high degree of public pressure surrounding the deal and significant stakeholder interests at risk, our insight and experience delivered an inventive solution to ensure our client’s pursuit of Virgin Australia was successful.
After Bain was announced as the successful purchaser and prior to acquisition, KordaMentha worked closely with Virgin Australia, Herbert Smith Freehills and Bain Capital to actively manage stakeholder relationships and renegotiate hundreds of contracts through the Deed of Company Arrangement period.
Post-acquisition, the KordaMentha team worked with Bain Capital and Virgin Australia management on several key transformation implementation streams:
The objective of this work was to create a Virgin 2.0 with a flexible and reduced cost base, while providing short-term adaptability to manage COVID-19 uncertainty.
