NEW YORK – Nov. 30, 2020 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP acted as U.S. counsel to Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., the initial purchaser and sole bookrunner, in the offering of US$40 million in 10.25% senior secured notes due 2025 issued by Frigorífico Concepción S.A., Paraguay’s leading beef processing company.
The new notes were issued under the indenture pursuant to which the company previously issued US$100 million. The new notes will be treated as the same class and series as, and otherwise identical to, the initial notes other than with respect to the date of issuance and issue price.
“This re-tap offering came on the heels of a strong performance by the company since its debut offering earlier in the year and was preceded by a successful consent solicitation to modify the indenture to accommodate the offering,” said Greenberg Traurig’s Marc M. Rossell, who is a shareholder in the firm’s Corporate Practice and co-chair of the firm’s Latin America Practice. “We are pleased to have been of assistance to the transaction team in this financing.”
