Pageant Media’s Acquisition Of Eurekahedge From Mizuho Bank


Joelson have advised Pageant Media on its recent acquisition of Eurekahedge from Mizuho Bank.

The deal is very important for Pageant as it’s the first transaction completed since they took on board substantial investment from ICG earlier this year and it will assist the quality of their offering with some great content in the APAC region.

Completion of the transaction during the global pandemic caused by Covid-19 has been challenging but the legal teams, Pageant and Mizuho worked well together to overcome these and close the deal in a timely fashion.

The corporate team at Joelson worked closely with Charlie Kerr (CEO) and Phil O’Toole (CFO) on the transaction as Lead Counsel managing the multi-jurisdictional teams in both Singapore and the Philippines and the US in relation to this transaction. The Team was led by partner Phil Hails-Smith (Picutre) who was supported by Associate Maria Panayi.
