Ogier acts for BTG Pactual in the restructuring of major Brazilian drugstore chain


26 April 2017

Cayman Islands

Ogier has acted for BTG Pactual Participations Ltd. and certain of its affiliates in respect of its recent restructuring of its interests in major Brazilian drugstore chain, Brasil Pharma S.A.

The transaction involved a combination of an equity restructuring and the issue of new debt by Brasil Pharma.

Ogier's Cayman corporate and finance team worked alongside lead Brazilian counsel and advised BTG on all matters of Cayman Islands law, including advising on the structuring of the transaction.

Partner James Heinicke said: "We have a strong relationship with BTG Pactual and it was a pleasure to assist them once again on this complex and fast-paced transaction. Ogier has recently been recognised for its reputation in Latin America, and particularly for Brazilian clients, and this piece of work reflects the nature of the complex instructions that we undertake.  We look forward to working with BTG on future deals."

James led the transaction for the firm and was assisted by associate James Lydeard.
