Holland & Knight advised Banco Multiva in two loans to the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon for a combined amount of MXN$2.3 billion (US$115 million) as part of a MXN$42.7 billion (US$2.1 billion) financial reorganization. The transaction closed on February 27.
The loans were granted pursuant to the new law on financial discipline for federal entities and municipalities (Ley de Disciplina Financiera de las Entidades Federativas y los Municipios).
Banco Multiva was selected as lender to the state of Nuevo Leon through two competitive bidding processes. Nuevo Leon is the first Mexican state to have an independent governor.
