New Zealand Rugby has set a date to finalise the Silver Lake deal.

NZR will hold a Special General Meeting in Auckland on June 2nd to allow provincial unions to vote on the whether

to proceed with the deal that will see the US equity firm invest in $200 million in a new commercial entity that will cover NZR’s commercial generating assets.

It’s been a year in the half in the making with at times bitter wrangling between the NZR, the provincial unions and the players association.

The deal was due to be voted on at last months AGm but the vote was postponed after the Provincial Unions asked for more information and a bigger slice of future revenue.

The proposed deal would result in Silver Lake investing $200 million in a new commercial entity that will control all revenue-generating assests of NZR.

The entity would be called CommercialCo and remain under the control of NZR.
