New York, NY – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that it recently represented Credit Suisse, UBS, Citigroup and BTG Pactual as initial purchasers in connection with the offering by Spain’s CaixaBank of shares representing approximately 6.4% of Grupo Financiero Inbursa, S.A.B. de C.V. Inbursa, which is listed on the Mexican Stock Exchange and is controlled by Carlos Slim and members of the Slim family, is one of the leading financial services holding companies in Mexico.
The transaction raised approximately US$1 billion (including the overallotment option) and consisted of a follow-on public offering in Mexico with a concurrent international tranche under Rule 144A and Regulation S.
