King & Wood Mallesons and Allen & Overy acted in Bingo Industries' $439.5m initial public offering and listing on the ASX, the largest Australian IPO yet in 2017.

KWM advised Bingo, with its team acting on all aspects of the IPO, including the related restructure and IPO debt refinancing, the firm said. Allen & Overy advised Macquarie Capital as the sole lead manager and underwriter of the float.

KWM's team was led by corporate partners Jason Watts and David Friedlander and banking and finance partner Yuen-Yee Cho. They were supported by senior associates Amanda Isouard and Shabarika Ajitkumar, solicitors Anna Chen, Jennifer Cheung, Robert Garritano and Jarred Bambridge, and law graduate Georgia Feltis and banking associate Zoe Anderson.

Allen & Overy's team was led by equity capital markets partner Tony Sparks with support from senior associate Linda Sweeney and associate Keegan Lopez.

Bingo, a waste-management and recycling company with expansive operations in New South Wales, has capabilities across the waste-collection, processing, separation, and recycling components of the waste-management chain. It has grown from a small company with only four trucks in 2005, to a company with 158 trucks and 10 recycling centres.
