Baker McKenzie advised Credit Suisse as sole arranger on an unitranche-financing including a working capital facility, a premiere on the German Market.

Credit Suisse arranged the unitranche-financing including a working capital facility for an acquisition financing. As sole mandated lead arranger the bank also acted as underwriter. The syndication for the financing is still pending.

The transaction to be financed is the recently announced take over of the Swiss Secura Industriebeteiligung including its German subsidiaries Müpro and UBB by Perusa as well as further institutional co-investors.

„This was an important transaction for Credit Suisse and the German financing market, as such unitranche financing were until now exclusive to the debt-funds domain. We hope to assist Credit Suisse on more such transactions in order for them to break into this market even more,“ comments Dr. Oliver Socher, lead partner on the transaction at Baker McKenzie.

The Banking & Finance-Team of Baker McKenzie regularly advises a large number of German and international financial institutions. Amongst the most recent clients are such institutions as the ING Bank, DZ Bank, LBBW, Commerzbank, MUFG, UBS, BNPP, DEKA, SCB, RBS.
