KWM Advises On Sale Of TEG To Silver Lake

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has acted for funds advised by Affinity Equity Partners (S) Pte Ltd and its affiliates (and the other vendor shareholders) on the sale of Australian live events and ticketing business, TEG.

TEG, Australia’s leading events business and owner of Ticketek, has been sold to US private equity firm Silver Lake Partners (Silver Lake).

TEG was acquired by Affinity in 2016 and proceeded to expand its portfolio throughout the Asia Pacific and more recently, the UK.

The KWM team advising on the deal was led by partner Mark McNamara and senior associate Anthony Boogert.  Specialist support was also provided by partners Tim Sherman and Elizabeth Hundt Russell, special counsel Mandy Tsang and senior associates Victoria Lanyon and Dan Flanagan.

Commenting on the transaction, Mark McNamara said: “TEG is the leader in live events promotion and ticketing in Australia.  The TEG executive team, led by Geoff Jones, has done a remarkable job in growing the business in partnership with Affinity since 2016.  The sale to Silver Lake represents the next chapter for TEG and its management team and we wish them every success as they continue to grow in Australia and internationally.”
