The London corporate team of global law firm Reed Smith has advised UK-based IT solutions provider the Kelway Group (Kelway) and its majority shareholders in relation to the disposal of the remaining 65% of Kelway to CDW Corporation (CDW).
This follows the firm’s role in November 2014 advising Kelway and its shareholders on the sale of 35% of the shares in Kelway to CDW, and the entry into of an option for CDW to acquire the remainder of the shares in Kelway. The transaction will allow CDW, a Fortune 500 multi-brand technology solutions company, to accelerate its ability to provide IT solutions to U.S.-based customers with international locations.
