    Eversheds has advised private equity firm Elysian Capital on its acquisition of independent toy manufacturer Sambro International Ltd, whose partnerships include Star Wars and Frozen.

    Sambro is a leading UK creator, designer, producer and distributor of licensed children’s products covering a wide range of product categories and world famous franchises from Disney, Universal and Nickelodeon.

    The deal has been made in conjunction with the management team at Sambro and is the first platform deal in the Elysian Capital II Fund, which closed in summer 2015 at £250m.

    The Eversheds team was led by corporate partner Robin Skelton, assisted by senior associate David Milne, banking partner Kathryn Walters and associates Mallory Green, David Parry, Sarah Illidge and Rebecca Harries.

    Robin Skelton commented:

    “Eversheds has acted for Elysian on several deals in recent years and we are delighted to have partnered with them again on the acquisition of Sambro. Elysian are an ambitious PE house and it has been extremely satisfying to help them achieve their plans.”

    Ken Terry, CEO at Elysian, commented:

    “This is an exciting deal for Elysian and the expertise and support from the team at Eversheds has been invaluable as we embark on a new chapter with our Elysian Capital II Fund.”
