Trade Financing of the Year: Suzano Papel e Celulose

This category’s winner made headlines last year with a blockbuster merger that helped create a new leader in the global commodities business. The transaction, which recently closed, was one of the biggest M&A deals in Latin America last year. To help move the deal forward, the company executed binding financing commitments with international financial institutions that included a $6.9 billion senior unsecured bridge facility. It also included a $2.3 billion export prepayment facility to help finance exports of the two combined companies.

Please join me in congratulating Suzano.
