New York – Paul Hastings, a leading global law firm, announced today that the firm represented Mexican company FAURECIA SISTEMAS AUTOMOTRICES DE MÉXICO, S.A. DE C.V. (“Faurecia”), as borrower, and French company FAURECIA S.E., as parent guarantor, in a $210 million senior unsecured loan from a consortium of banks, structured in two tranches in U.S. Dollars and Mexican Pesos.

The loan was guaranteed by Faurecia, S.E., the parent company of Faurecia. The loan was lead-managed by Citibank, N.A. and BBVA Mexico, with approximately five other banks in the syndicate.
