The banking, finance and capital markets team of Alcogal recently represented Credit Suisse and other lenders in connection with a credit facility of up to US$100 million for the German glass manufacturing company AGP America S.A.

The loan is distributed in three tranches:

  • Part A-1 of US$40 million dollars.
  • Part A-2 of US$25 million dollars.
  • Part B of US$35 million dollars.

The financing benefits AGP subsidiaries in Peru, Colombia, Belgium and Panama.

The transaction was completed on June 2nd and funds from the loan will be used to refinance existing debt, for the development of the Soliver acquisition and working capital.
