Masisa launches a tender offer for the partial repurchase of its notes worth USD100 million

1 February, 2016 by Vincent Manancourt

The New York office of Linklaters and Chile’s Carey have helped wood products company Masisa launch a tender offer to repurchase US$100 million worth of debt from JP Morgan and Scotiabank, which called on Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP in New York.

The transaction closed on 6 January. JP Morgan and Scotiabank initially purchased the debt in 2014, when Masisa issued notes worth US$300 million. Carey and Linklaters advised Masisa in that deal, while Simpson Thacher and Philippi Prietocarrizosa & Uría (Chile), then known as Philippi, Yrarrázaval, Pulido, & Brunne, represented the banks.
