December 2018

Bell Gully advised Contact Energy Limited (Contact) on the sale of its LPG business, Rockgas, to Gas Services NZ Midco Limited (GSNZ) for $260 million.

Bell Gully's role in this transaction was led by partner Chris Gordon. Garry Downs, a former Bell Gully partner, acted for GSNZ, with support from Chapman Tripp.

Chris said: "We are delighted to have assisted Contact with this initiative and very much enjoyed working with Contact's in-house legal and commercial teams and with GSNZ and its advisers, all of whom adopted a very constructive and solutions-driven approach to the transaction."‚Äč
