Private Equity Deal of the Year: OHL

Private Equity Deal of the Year: OHL

This year’s winning transaction is notable for several reasons. It was one of the biggest transportation infrastructure deals in Latin America in 2018. It was also the winning firm’s single biggest deal in the region.

It was a complex deal across five five countries -- Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Spain. It included 14 toll roads, three ports, one airport and one light rail asset. The deal was also negotiated at a challenging time because of the regional fallout from several scandals surrounding infrastructure projects in region.

The winner of the award is IFM Investors for its $2.6 billion acquisition of OHL Concesiones
