BLP receives second award on Autopistas del Sol refinancing


April, 2018

IJGlobal, a predominant Journal on Project Finance & Infrastructure, has honored BLP with a top award for the “Latin America Project Bond Deal of the Year.”

BLP’s team of credit specialists advised Autopistas del Sol, a Globalvia subsidiary, in its issuance of $300 million senior secured notes in international markets, as well as the placement of notes in the local market valued at $50.75 million.

This was the first infrastructure project of a Costa Rica-based company created under the General Law of Public Works Concessions with Public Services that sanctions the financing of projects through capital market borrowing. The deal was also the first transaction in which a Costa Rican issuer simultaneously placed bonds in both international and local markets.

IJGlobal’s award marks the second time BLP has been cited for its performance on this complex offering, the firm has also received recognition for the “Transport Finance Deal of the Year” from Bonds & Loans, an international platform that monitors the global credit market.

Our client Globalvia also received recognition for its efforts on behalf of the Autopistas del Sol project by earning a citation for the “Best Infrastructure Financing in Central America” from the regional money magazine, LatinFinance.
