Thommessen advised Get and its shareholders in the dual track exit process for the fibre-based broadband and content provider Get.

The process comprised an auction sale in which industrial players and financial sponsors were invited to make offers for the company, and an IPO process on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

Get was prepared to announce its intention to float and print the IPO prospectus when a final share purchase agreement was entered into with TDC A/S for the sale of Get at an enterprise value of NOK 13.8 billon (EUR 1.7 billion).

Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs International were managing the auction sale, and additional banks were involved as managers in the IPO track.
