The investment company said Wednesday that Kirkland & Ellis served as its legal adviser on the transaction while Rothschild & Co. and PwC acted as financing and financial advisers, respectively.

Tonkon Torp and Greenhill & Co. were the legal and financial advisers to Columbia. AEI first announced the deal and retained Columbia CEO Steve Bandy in his post back in July.

“This new partnership supports our vision of growth and diversification,” Bandy said at the time.
