Cripps advises Green Power Conferences on its sale to S&P Global Commodities UK

22 May 2024

Cripps’ corporate team has advised Green Power Conferences on its sale to S&P Global Commodities UK, a division of S&P Global, and the leading independent provider of information, data, analysis, benchmark prices and workflow solutions for the commodities, energy, metals and energy transition markets.

Green Power Conferences is a highly respected company known for its industry-leading portfolio of hydrogen-related conferences, events, digital training, and market intelligence. The company was recognised for its impressive growth in the 2023 Sunday Times Hundred list of Britain’s fastest-growing private companies. Green Power Conferences’ events attract over 5,000 attendees annually, with World Hydrogen Week, scheduled for Copenhagen in September, being its flagship conference.

Cripps’ team, led by legal director Kate Sun and comprising Andreea Rusu, Lawrence Moran, Hannah Morris, and Charlotte Spendley, advised on all aspects of the corporate law surrounding the sale. Holly Milne-Peasey from Cripps’ employment law team also provided specialist advice throughout the transaction.

Kate Sun, commented: “This deal involved navigating complex structures for multiple shareholders, further compounded by logistical challenges with advisors spread across three different time zones in New York, Singapore, and the UK. We are thrilled to have got this over the line and achieve the desired outcome.”

Nadim Chaudhry, CEO at Green Power Conferences added: “The Cripps team, led by Kate Sun ably assisted by Andreea Rusu, gave excellent professional service and kept the deal moving forward even when the negotiations were hard. I’m sure former Cripps partner Nigel Stanford would have been looking down proud!”

This transaction demonstrates Cripps’ commitment to supporting businesses leading the move to cleaner energy. Its ESG team provides comprehensive legal advice to companies navigating the complex landscape of environmental, social, and governance factors.
