Rio de Janeiro pension fund RioPrevidência has been advised by the Brazilian firm Campos Mello Advogados and Clifford Chance’s São Paulo office in a US$ 600 million notes issuance secured by the state’s future oil and gas revenues.
BB Securities and BNP Paribas Securities acted as joint lead managers and were both advised by Hogan Lovells LLP’s New York and São Paulo offices and Brazilian firm Cescon, Barrieu e Flesch & Barreto – Advogados. The transaction settled on April 19, 2018.
The issuance took place 4 years after RioPrevidência’s previous issuance, which raised more than US$ 4 billion in 2014.
