DWF completes acquisition of Mindcrest Inc

02 March 2020
DWF Mindcrest | DWF
DWF announces that it has now completed the acquisition of Mindcrest Inc, the leading legal and managed services business. 

DWF, the global legal business providing Complex, Managed and Connected Services, announces that it has now completed the acquisition of Mindcrest Inc. ("Mindcrest"), the leading legal and managed services business. This follows an announcement on 29 January 2020 that DWF had reached a definitive agreement to acquire Mindcrest subject to the satisfaction of certain pre-conditions.

Now that the pre-conditions have been met, DWF has acquired full ownership of Mindcrest for an initial consideration of US$10.9m (£8.3m) of which US$2.4m (£1.8m) was satisfied in cash and US$8.5m (£6.5m) was satisfied by the issue of 5,028,738 new ordinary shares in DWF (the "Consideration Shares").

Going forward, Mindcrest will operate as DWF Mindcrest, offering managed services and integrated legal solutions to clients globally.

An additional cash consideration of US$7.6m (£5.9m) is deferred and phased over a period of 6 months meaning a total of US$18.5m (£14.2m) is payable to the Mindcrest sellers. 

Application has been made for the Consideration Shares to be admitted to listing on the premium segment of the Official List and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange at 8.00 a.m. on 2 March 2020.

Following the issue of the Consideration Shares, the Company's issued share capital consists of 324,554,665 ordinary shares with voting rights. There are no ordinary shares held in treasury. This figure may be used by shareholders (and others with notification obligations) as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, DWF under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
