Pursuing an international transaction in Brazil
A large U.S.-based private equity firm with significant investments in broadband providers and network infrastructure sought its first entry into international markets via the purchase of a service provider company in Brazil.
ASG's Americas team developed a bespoke analysis of Brazil's macro-political and economic history, state of play, and outlook, with a focus on local conditions in the states and regions where the company operates. We assessed market dynamics and government priorities in Brazil's telecommunications sector, in order to evaluate the market's suitability for investment, and eventually conducted discrete political and reputational diligence related to key executives in the local company.
ASG's insights gave the client confidence in its prospective investment and in the Brazilian market more broadly, leading to the successful close of a nine-figure transaction. ASG has since advised the client as they seek to expand their presence in Brazil and pursue additional investment opportunities in Latin America.
