Chapman Tripp was recently honoured with an award from Z Energy for its contribution to the company’s successful IPO.
Z presented ‘Z Supplier Hero’ awards to six suppliers who best demonstrated the company’s five values in 2013. Nominations were made by Z staff and the winners were chosen from business-wide feedback.
Chapman Tripp was awarded for demonstrating the ‘Have the passion’ value. Z’s CEO, Mike Bennetts, commented specifically on the effort that the Chapman Tripp team put into their work and the sense of humour they displayed along the way.
The Chapman Tripp team, led by Geof Shirtcliffe, Josh Blackmore and Emma Sutcliffe, advised Z Energy on almost all aspects of its $840 million IPO and NZX and ASX listings.
Geof Shirtcliffe said: “A lot of people worked very hard to make the IPO happen. Given the central role that Z’s values play in everything it does, we are thrilled that our contribution has been recognised in this way.”
