The deal closed on August 6, 2020.

The Arnold & Porter Corporate & Finance team included partners Jeremy Willcocks and Ewan Townsend and associate Tom Wilson. The Arnold & Porter team also included partner John Schmidt, who leads the firm's UK Competition group in London, and Intellectual Property associate Shishu Chen.
