Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and Brazil's Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados have helped sovereign wealth fund Qatar Holding raise 2.3 billion reais (US$720 million) through a secondary offering of shares in Santander Brasil.
Santander Brasil, which was lead underwriter as well as the target company, turned to Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP and Pinheiro Neto Advogados. Shearman & Sterling LLP and Lefosse Advogados also advised Santander and underwriters Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse.
Qatar Holdings carried out a registered public offering in the US and a public offering with restricted efforts in Brazil, which exempts it from certain registration requirements before the Comissão de Valores Mobiliários, Brazil's securities watchdog.
The offering closed on 12 April.
