Growth Financing – Fiber Network
ACP raised $25M in debt financing for a Colombian telecom operator which operates a 30K nationwide fiber optic network. The funding was used for working capital, capital expenditures and subscriber acquisition costs to allow the company to reach cash flow break-even. ACP delivered multiple term sheets and was successful in securing a structured debt solution from a US-based asset manager.
Growth Financing – Towers
ACP raised $45 million for a Latin American tower company seeking funding to build out 350 towers for two of the largest wireless operators in Argentina. ACP’s mandate was to seek a creative debt financing solution with minimal equity dilution during a challenging period in Argentina when local and international banking markets were virtually closed for large-scale greenfield tower infrastructure projects. ACP was successful in closing a transaction within a short time period to allow the Company to meet its tower build-out requirements.
Sale of Tower Assets
ACP advised a leading telecom company on the sale of its portfolio of non-core tower assets in Colombia to one the of the leading tower companies in Latin America. ACP managed a competitive process involving both strategic and private equity funds invested in the tower sector.
