Allen & Overy is advising leading private investment house Ardian’s London buyout team on the acquisition of Audiotonix, a global market leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of professional audio mixing consoles and ancillary products, from Astorg and its management.

This is A&O's second deal for the London Ardian buyout team in 2019, following acting on their acquisition of Study Group from Providence Equity Partners earlier in the year.

Commenting on the deal, lead partner Karan Dinamani said: "We're proud to be working with Ardian again on another exciting investment. They have managed to secure two very high quality assets in an incredibly competitive market and we have been delighted to have supported them over the line on both."

A&O acted on all legal aspects of the transaction and drew on expertise in several offices including London, Hong Kong, Paris, Frankfurt and New York. The deal was led from London by Private Equity M&A partner Karan Dinamani, supported by Private Equity M&A partner Stephen Lloyd and associates Jamie Funder, Hayley Elsley, Soyeon Lim, Nina Gogic and trainee Andreas Georgiades. 

The transaction has been signed subject to customary regulatory approvals.
