M&A activity in Latin America has grown significantly in recent decades, and deals are increasingly complex. As part of Latin Lawyer’s The Guide to Mergers & Acquisitions, partner Denise Grant, associates Augusto Ruiloba and Rita Ghanem, and former associate Lisseth Rincon have authored a chapter, “Acquisition Finance in Latin America” in which they discuss important considerations when structuring and financing an acquisition in the region. With local counsel and client input, they cover related trends, practices and challenges, focusing primarily on the six largest economies in Latin America – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru – from a New York perspective, including:

  • The regional acquisition finance market
  • Structuring debt financing for an acquisition
  • Acquisition finance documentation
  • SunGard provisions that help mitigate risk
  • Protections for debt providers
  • Specific considerations for Latin America
