(IEnova), the largest private-sector energy company in Mexico, in obtaining a 15-year financing with the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), for up to US$241 million. The project underscores the positive role of private investment in the Mexican energy and power markets.
Members of Latham’s Latin America Practice advised IEnova in the transaction with a team led by Project Development & Finance partner Sony Ben-Moshe and counsel Luis Torres, with associates Sarah Cunningham and Evan Pelz, international visiting associate Daniel Gallo, and Capital Markets partner Roderick Branch also participating in the transactions.
