Abstract

Peter Boizot finally decided to go forward with the reverse takeover structure proposed by Star Computers and G+F, Pizza Express' largest franchisee. Over the ensuing months, teams from the three companies worked together to structure the deal, prepare for the listing and undertake a mutual due diligence process. With the investor road shows on the horizon, Luke Johnson, one of the financial entrepreneurs behind the transaction, was worried that the deal might be too complex for institutional investors. He also wondered whether or not they were paying too much money for the company.
