Domestic M&A Deal of the Year: InRetail

Domestic M&A Deal of the Year: InRetail

This year’s winner executed a strategic acquisition in a deal that marked the largest in the drugstore chain space in years.

In a span of three months, the buyer had to raise the financing for  the takeover which included debt and a $1 billion bridge loan, which was the largest private bridge in the history of Peru. At the same time, InRetail did a liability management exercise in order to implement the bridge loan facility, prepaying some bonds that the company had issued in 2014.

The winner this year is InRetail.
