Liberum acts as Financial Advisor in the acquisition of Hornby Plc

On 21 June, Phoenix UK Fund Ltd announced a mandatory cash offer for Hornby Plc following the acquisition of a 20.86% stake of Hornby from New Pistoia Income Settlement.

Hornby develops, manufactures and supplies hobby and toy products for a global market, with a collection of truly iconic brands spanning model railways, slot racing, die-cast models and plastic model kits. Hornby’s brands include Scalextric, Airfix, Corgi and Hornby.

Phoenix UK Fund is managed by Phoenix Asset Management Partners, a specialist fund management company founded in 1998 By Gary Channon, who acts as Chief Investment Officer.
