Charles Russell has won a role opposite Norton Rose and Linklaters advising on the main market listing of newly-merged company Peter Hambro Mining (PHM) for nearly £900m.

Charles Russell corporate partner Alexander Keepin advised JP Morgan Cazenove and Canaccord Adams as joint sponsors to Russia’s secondlargest gold producer PHM on its listing on the London Stock Exchange.

The main market listing follows PHM’s acquisition of iron ore company Aricom earlier this year, in a deal that brought the companies back into one entity following their previous demerger in 2003.

Charles Russell has a long history of advising JP Morgan and Canaccord in connection with both PHM and Aricom, with past mandates including a $104m (£70.4m) capital raising for PHM in 2007 as well as both PHM and Aricom’s previous admissions to the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in April 2002 and December 2003 respectively.

Norton Rose corporate finance partner Simon FT Cox advised PHM while Linklaters corporate partner Charlie Jacobs advised Aricom.

The acquisition and market listing – which gave the merged entity a market capitalisation of £890m – both completed last week (22 April).

Keepin commented: “Having first acted for PHM on its admission to AIM in 2002, it is good to see it making such a significant acquisition and moving to the main market, particularly in the current market.”

Cox said: “It was quite a challenge to get the logistics of both substantial exercises coinciding at the same time.”
