TozziniFreire assisted Argo Energia, Grupo Energía de Bogotá – GEB and REDEIA in one of the largest transactions in the Brazilian electricity transmission sector: the acquisition of 100% of the equity control in 5 transmission concessionaires held by the Quantum/Brookfield Group, valued at BRL 7.4 billion. This way, Argo Energia doubled its size in terms of transmission installations on the market.
According to Leonardo Miranda, one of the partners at TozziniFreire’s Infrastructure and Energy area, the recent award is an important recognition of the firm's solid experience in M&A deals in the electricity sector, especially considering the recent track record of transactions: the firm participated in the last six largest transactions in the transmission segment. In addition to Leonardo Miranda, our partners Karin Yamauti and Ana Carolina Katlauskas Calil also participated in the coordination of this project, as well as associates Erica Makiyama and Enzo Campolim.
