Loyens & Loeff

Loyens & Loeff wins two awards by LatinFinance Project & Infrastructure Finance Deals of the year 2018

Loyens & Loeff Luxembourg was awarded by The LatinFinance Project & Infrastructure Finance Deals of the Year ‘The Best Bond’ and ‘The Best Infrastructure Financing – Brazil’ for their advice on the CELSE USD 1 billion project financing/bond transaction. LatinFinance recognises the best deals of the past twelve months in a field critical to Latin America’s economic progress.

The Loyens & Loeff team advised Goldman Sachs & Co. as sole bookrunner, with the issuance of R$ 3,201,500,000 9.850% senior secured notes due 2032 through a Luxembourg SPV issuer, the proceeds of which, have been used to purchase debentures issued by Centrais Elétricas de Sergipe S.A. in connection with the financing of the Porto de Sergipe I Thermoelectric Complex located in Barra dos Coqueiros in the State of Sergipe, Brazil which will be Latin America's largest gas-fired power generation project. Our team also assisted with the listing and admission to trading of the notes on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange’s Euro MTF market.

These recognitions should be of great pride for the entire Loyens & Loeff team which comprised Cédric Raffoul and Arnaud Barchman for capital markets, Peter Adriaansen, Willem Bon and Fernanda Rubim for the tax aspects, Thierry Lohest and Luis Alberto Aguerre Enriquez on the corporate/M&A advice.
