Iberian Lawyer highlights VdA by advising the Finerge Group on a $150M financing transaction, under which the sums used for the acquisition of two solar park portfolios in Portugal and Spain were reimbursed.

This financing was granted to FRGE Estrela 2 - the Luxembourg holding company that owns Finerge Estrela - by a syndicate composed of Totta Ireland, Bankinter, MUFG and BBVA.

The Finerge Group is the second largest renewable energy producer in Portugal, with an installed capacity of over 1,339 MW, and is owned by First Sentier Investors (formerly First State Investments), an asset management fund with over USD 150 billion in assets under management.

A multidisciplinary team led by Partners Teresa Empis Falcão and Ana Luís de Sousa worked on this transaction, composed by Sofia Bobone, Vanessa Cardoso Pires (Managing Associates), Carlos Couto, Maria Carrilho (Senior Associates), Beatriz Pereira da Silva, Carolina Tita Maurício (Associates), Duarte Brito Goes, Gonçalo Ferreira de Macedo and Nicolas Lobo Pinzón (Trainees).
Cláudia Cruz Almeida (Partner) and Domingos Freire de Andrade (Associate) were always present on M&A and client management issues.
