Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie announced today that it represented Bank of America, BBVA, Santander, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JP Morgan and Scotia as initial purchasers in connection with a notes offering by Fibra Uno. The offering consisted of US$600 million of 7.375% Senior Green Notes due 2034. The notes were issued pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S. 

Transactional Practice Group partners Mike Fitzgerald, Arturo Carrillo, Joy Gallup, Pedro Reyes and Steven Sandretto led the Baker McKenzie team, which also included associates Alejandra Cuadra and Nicole Gresati Fernandez.

Other law firms participating in this transaction included Holland & Knight (as Fibra Uno’s U.S. and Mexican counsel) and Mijares (as initial purchasers' Mexican counsel).

Baker McKenzie lawyers have been involved in all of Fibra Uno’s international debt and equity offerings, including representing the initial purchasers in Fibra Uno’s historic IPO in 2011, its initial follow-on offering in 2012, subsequent follow-on offerings in 2013, 2014 and 2017 and international debt offerings in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2019, 2020 and 2021. After its IPO, Fibra Uno became the very first Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in Latin America and the first Mexican REIT to be utilized in the wake of a comprehensive legal overhaul in Mexico that created the “FIBRA,” a new Mexican investment vehicle, which bears many similarities to the U.S. REIT. Baker McKenzie lawyers, using their strong real estate and Latin American franchises, have worked on almost all of the international FIBRA transactions concluded to date.
