US Capital Markets in Australia

Our US capital markets team in Sydney advises Australian and New Zealand issuers on US capital markets transactions ranging from the establishment of American Depositary Receipt programs to offers of debt and equity transactions in the private placement, Rule 144A and SEC-registered public markets. We also advise on other matters governed by US law.

We offer a unique "one-stop shop" capability of delivering both US and Australian law advice under one roof in Australia.This enables us to advise Australian issuers seeking to access the US debt and equity markets in a more convenient and cost-effective manner than hiring separate Australian and US law firms.

Edition 10 of the SCM Briefing provides an update on key legal and regulatory developments affecting structured capital markets transactions, and contains features on the New Directive introducing EU-wide mortgage regulation from 2016 and Trustee Hot Topics.

Prokon, a large German wind power company, recently went bankrupt due to its inability to meet interest payments under profit participation rights (“Genussrechte”) issued to investors. Prokon had advertised widely for investment in its profit participation rights and had collected large amounts of cash from retail investors. The rights had a fixed coupon of 8% which the company was unable to pay. The insolvency court recently invalidated the subordination clause in the terms of the profit participation rights. As a result the investors will share pari passu with the other unsecured Prokon creditors in the assets of the insolvent estate.
