Por: Latin LawyerImprimirVisualizar em PDF

Pinheiro Neto Advogados has helped the Brazilian arm of mining company Ero Copper refinance debt with a new credit facility worth US$50 million.

Nova Scotia, as lender, relied on Cescon, Barrieu, Flesch & Barreto Advogados.

As part of the transaction, Nova Scotia bought notes previously issued by one of Ero's subsidiaries and held by Itaú and Votorantim. The notes, worth US$75.6 million, will be swapped for the US$50 million senior secured non-revolving credit facility. Ero Copper reduce its debt load by 15.4% as a result of the deal, which closed on 21 December. 

The loan matures in 2023 and has an interest rate of 7% for the first 12 months. This rate will drop to between 4.5% and 5.5% when Ero completes its Vermelhos copper mine in the north-eastern state of Bahia. The project is scheduled for completion at the end of this year.
