iDeals™ Solutions Completes Second Major Regional Transport Deal of 2012
May 21, 2012
iDeals™ Virtual Data Room (VDR) was mandated to act as a secure corporate documents exchange system to support the acquisition of LLC Metalloinvesttrans by Globaltrans Investment PLC. Metalloinvesttrans - was the captive freight rail transportation operator of Metalloinvest, a leading global extractor of iron ore and producer of hot briquetted iron. Globaltrans is a leading private freight rail transportation group and the first Russian freight company to have an international listing (2008, GDRs, London Stock Exchange).
The iDeals™ VDR platform was used to securely share the target's corporate data with potential buyers. The subsequent bidding ultimately culminated in Globaltrans' successful offer of $540m in cash for 100% of Mettaloinvesttrans.
iDeals™' involvement in the Metalloinvesttrans deal showcases the advantages of using a state-of-the art virtual data room for a major M&A transaction.
This successful transaction means that iDeals™ has been used to support over $1bn in regional transport sector M&A. Over $400m in investment was raised earlier this year by Kurumoch Airport using iDeals™ VDR as a document repository.
