HSF advises banks on billion-dollar deal

HSF advises banks on billion-dollar deal

Leighton Finance has secured a $1 billion syndicated facility agreement from a trio of banks.

Firms: Herbert Smith Freehills (syndicate of banks – ANZ, Mizuho Corporate Bank and NAB); Clayton Utz (Australian counsel for Leighton Finance); Mochtar Karuwin Komar (Indonesian counsel for Leighton Finance); Mayer Brown JSM (Hong Kong counsel for Leighton Finance)

Deal: The syndicate of banks has provided a $1 billion syndicated facility agreement to Leighton Finance

Area: Banking & finance

Value: $1 billion

Key players: The HSF team was led by partner Melita Cottrell (pictured), who was supported by senior associate Liam Williams

Deal significance: ANZ, Mizuho Corporate Bank and NAB were the mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners in this deal. The syndicated facility was provided, in part, to refinance Leighton’s existing syndicated facility agreement entered into in 2008. Financial close was achieved on 28 June this year. HSF lead partner Melita Cottrell said: “Having acted for the syndicate on Leighton’s previous financing in 2008, and for other bilateral lenders to Leighton since then, we were pleased to be able to assist the syndicate to achieve a successful financial close for Leighton’s new upsized syndicated facility under a relatively compressed timetable.”
