Chilean chemical company Sociedad Quimica y Minera (SQM) has turned to Chadbourne & Parke LLP’s New York office and Chile’s Claro & Cía to issue notes worth US$250 million.
Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan and Scotiabank acted as joint bookrunners and turned to the New York office of Simpson Thatcher & Bartlett LLP and Carey for the deal that closed on 28 October.
