DibbsBarker advises on $2.6 billion refinance for CIMIC Group

Services: Banking & Finance
Industry Focus: Financial Services
Date: 10 October 2017

DibbsBarker has advised CIMIC Group (ASX: CIM) in upsizing its core working capital cash facility. The refinance was heavily over-subscribed with a strong response from lenders in Australia and Asia.

DibbsBarker prepared the facility documents and played a central role in working through and settling the significant transaction and payment mechanics necessary to complete a transaction funded by a widely diverse syndicate.

The DibbsBarker team was led by banking & finance partner Brad Allen with assistance from senior associate Joshua Khoo.

Lead partner Brad Allen said: “This transaction is all about flexibility and liquidity – it reinforces the notion that providing debt to quality Australian borrowers continues to be an attractive choice for offshore financial institutions. We very much enjoyed working with all parties involved to bring the deal to a close”.

CIMIC Group is one of the world’s leading international contractors and the world’s largest contract miner. It operates in more than 20 countries throughout the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, North and South America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
