Client or Matter Name

Grupo Crédito Mestro – leader in the payroll financing industry in México which generates more than MXN$2 Million in portfolio each year.

Deal Description

Counsel to Grupo Crédito Maestro, as borrower, in the execution of a simple loan facility for the amount of MXN$150,000,000.00 (the “Financing”) granted by CI Banco, as lender – One of the leader banks in the country, particularly in providing fiduciary services – for the support of the financing of the portfolio of the subsidiaries of Grupo Crédito Maestro.

Innovation & Additional Comments

The matter was particularly challenging since the Financing involved the structuring and implementation of a loan agreement, a management agreement and a master management agreement, as well as the corresponding package of guarantees in the form of a security trust.

Due to various factors, it was necessary to conclude these agreements in record time, which added a higher level of complexity in the negotiations with the counterparty.
