Clifford Chance has advised McLaren Group on the combination of McLaren Automotive – a globally renowned luxury high performance car manufacturer – and McLaren Technology Group, which includes one of the world’s oldest and most successful race teams and a high growth technology business. As part of the transaction, Clifford Chance advised on the financing arrangements, including the issuance of £564 million senior secured notes and a working capital facility. The proceeds from the bond offering were used to acquire Ron Dennis' shareholdings in the McLaren Group as well as repay existing indebtedness.
