On November 17, 2016, Seward & Kissel client iM Square announced the acquisition of a substantial minority equity stake in Dolan McEniry Capital Management.
Chicago-based Dolan McEniry Capital Management is an asset management firm specializing in investment grade and high yield corporate bonds with $5.8 billion of assets under management. This is the second transaction for iM Square (after its December 2015 investment in Polen Capital, see our related post) since the firm’s launch by Philippe Couvrecelle and founding shareholders Amundi (the leading European asset manager), Eurazeo (one of the leading listed investment companies in Europe) and La Maison (an investment group that includes Dassault Group as its leading shareholder). A Seward & Kissel team led by partners Craig Sklar and Jim Abbott and associate Gerhard Anderson, along with tax partner Jim Cofer, Employment partner Anne Patin, Employee Benefits counsel Michael O’Brien, and associates Dora Pulido and Kaitlyn Pasco represented iM Square in connection with the transaction.
