Slaughter and May is advising Charter International on a recommended offer by Colfax Corporation

Slaughter and May is advising Charter International PLC ('Charter') on a recommended cash and share offer to be made by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Colfax Corporation for Charter which values the company at approximately £1,528 million.
It is proposed that the acquisition will be implemented by way of a court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement or if Colfax elects a takeover offer to Charter shareholders.
The recommended offer was announced on 12 September 2011.

Charter is a supplier of welding equipment and industrial compressors and Colfax, headquartered in the U.S., is a global supplier of a broad range of fluid handling products.
The Slaughter and May team is led by corporate partners Andy Ryde and Robin Ogle who are supported by associates Chris Bulger, Connor Cahalane, Emma Whyte and Andrew Stevens. The team also includes dispute resolution partners Sarah Lee, Jonathan Cotton and Richard Swallow who are supported by associate Simon Osborn-King; financing partner Robert Byk who is supported by associate Alexandra Harvey; competition partner Bertrand Louveaux, who is supported by associates Paul Walter and Peter Rowland; pensions and employment partners Jonathan Fenn and Sandeep Maudgil, who are supported by associates Adam Taylor and Edward Smith; tax partner Sara Luder who is supported by associate John Meehan.
