Cains’ corporate department recently advised long standing client Myers Business Trust in its acquisition of Gill Marine Holdings Limited (“Gill Marine”), which was previously majority owned by YFM Equity Partners. Gill Marine is a global designer and manufacturer of marine clothing, footwear and accessories which, in 2013, won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The consideration for the acquisition is undisclosed.

Scott Leonard-Morgan, a Director in Cains’ corporate department, said: “It was a pleasure working with the Myers Business Trust in relation to its acquisition of Gill Marine and to be able to afford the client the benefit of Cains’ wealth of M&A experience. 2018 was a very busy year for the firm’s M&A practice generally and it was a delight to be able to conclude it with the successful close of this transaction.”
