New York, NY – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, represented Nemak, S.A.B. de C.V., a leading global independent manufacturer of high-tech, complex aluminum components for the automotive industry, in a US$800 million global offering of shares which consisted of a public tranche in Mexico and a Rule 144A/Reg S tranche outside of Mexico. The offering was the largest IPO out of Mexico in almost two years and one of the largest in Latin America this year. The international underwriters involved were Deutsche Bank, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and J.P. Morgan.
The offering was understood to be more than three times oversubscribed. It was the largest IPO out of Mexico since Grupo Lala’s offering in September 2013, where the issuer was also represented by Paul Hastings.
