We have advised numerous Mexican companies in equity and debt offerings and in tender offers on the Mexican Stock Exchange. We have also participated in some of the largest acquisition financings for publicly traded companies under the Mexican Securities Market Law, and helped clients in the issuance and public offering of structured notes (certificados de capital de desarrollo, or CKDs) to raise capital for private equity infrastructure and real estate projects, among others, as well as in the launch of real estate investment trusts (FIBRAs) and master Limited Partnerships (FIBRAs E).
We are very familiar with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, resulting from our work on investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission for alleged violations of U.S. securities laws and have worked closely with U.S. counsel on such cases. Also, we have significant experience in delisting Mexican issuers of securities in the United States. We have also participated in exchange of debt securities registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and 144A/Reg S offerings.
