W&B advises Nikon on strategic UK acquisition

White & Black has advised Nikon Corporation, the globally renowned leader in imaging technology, on its acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Mark Roberts Motion Control Limited (MRMC).

MRMC is an award-winning UK-based manufacturer of robotic motion control solutions, whose ground breaking products enable remote and automatic capture for clients around the world ranging from broadcast and film production to product photography.

The acquisition, which is scheduled to complete in October 2016, represents an important strategic opportunity for Nikon to capitalise on opportunities for automated solutions within the imaging sector and to expand its position within the field of imaging product solutions.

The W&B corporate team was led by M&A partners John Allen and Phil Riman supported by senior associate Rob Powell and Japan practice head Nick Mathys.

Commenting on the deal, John noted “We’re delighted to have supported Nikon on this strategically important transaction, which played to our core strength of advising on technology-focused corporate transactions and once again demonstrated our ability to provide seamless cross-border advice to leading multi-national clients.”
