New York – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, represented BofA Securities, Citigroup, BBVA, HSBC, Actinver Securities, Credit Suisse, Goldman, Sachs & Co., J.P. Morgan and Santander as initial purchasers in connection with a US$650 million senior notes offering by Fibra Uno, the largest real estate company in Latin America. The offering consisted of a US$375 million reopening of Fibra Uno’s 4.869% Senior Notes due 2030 and a US$275 million reopening of Fibra Uno’s 6.390% Senior Notes due 2050. The notes were issued pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S.
Paul Hastings attorneys have been involved in all of Fibra Uno’s international debt and equity offerings, including representing the initial purchasers in Fibra Uno’s historic IPO in 2011, its initial follow-on offering in 2012, subsequent follow-on offerings in 2013, 2014 and 2017 and international debt offerings in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019. After its IPO, Fibra Uno became the very first Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in Latin America and the first Mexican REIT to be utilized in the wake of a comprehensive legal overhaul in Mexico that created the “FIBRA,” a new Mexican investment vehicle, which bears many similarities to the U.S. REIT.
Paul Hastings attorneys, using their strong real estate and Latin American franchises, have worked on almost all of the international FIBRA transactions concluded to date.
Latin America practice partners Mike Fitzgerald and Arturo Carrillo led the Paul Hastings team, which also included partner Steven Sandretto, associate Eduardo Gonzalez and foreign associate Jose Pellon.
