Wynn Williams advises on sale of New Zealand Warriors
The Wynn Williams Corporate Advisory Team acted for New Zealand Warriors Limited, the company that owns the Vodafone Warriors, on the sale of the club to a consortium made up of the Carlaw Heritage Trust and Autex Industries.
The Wynn Williams team was led by Partner Nick Kovacevich.
The Carlaw Heritage Trust is an arm of Auckland Rugby League, with Cameron McGregor the chairman of both bodies. It acquired a 67% share of the club with manufacturing company Autex Industries, a longstanding supporter of rugby league in New Zealand, acquiring the remainder.
The transaction was completed via a competitive sales process, with the Carlaw Heritage Trust and Autex Industries being chosen ahead of other bidders, including an American investment consortium led by Hawaiian Richard Fale.
