S&C has extensive experience working with corporate borrowers and financial sponsors on acquisition finance transactions. S&C has a number of strengths that set its financing practice apart:
Our team works closely with borrowers and sponsors to develop the financing structure and strategy, including reviewing financing alternatives and managing the financing process to obtain “certain funds” commitments from banks and other funding sources on favorable terms. We work closely with borrowers and sponsors to efficiently manage the financing process and help reduce financing-related costs.
As a result of our regular involvement in the most significant acquisition finance transactions, including for AT&T in its $40 billion bridge loan to finance its $108.7 billion acquisition of Time Warner, and Bayer, in its $57 billion bridge loan to finance its $66 billion acquisition of Monsanto Company, S&C brings to bear the full benefit of its market knowledge and familiarity with recent precedent to help secure favorable terms on behalf of our clients.
We operate as a global partnership and our financing teams work closely and in a coordinated fashion across jurisdictions including the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific. We are also familiar with financing issues and local law considerations in key jurisdictions around the world, and work hard to manage local counsel efficiently to resolve any issues that arise.
S&C has advised on a number of recent major acquisition financing transactions, both with respect to U.S. and non-U.S. targets. Selected representations include advising:
