New York – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, represented Alpek, S.A.B. de C.V., a leading petrochemical company in Latin America and the United States, in an international offering of guaranteed Senior Notes. The more than six times over-subscribed offering involved the issuance of US$500 million of 4.250% Senior Notes due 2029 pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S. The active book-runners were Citigroup, HSBC and J.P. Morgan, and MUFG was a passive book-runner.
