April 4, 2014 – Planta de Reserva Fría de Generación de Eten S.A., a Peru-based power generation company, received the “Deal of the Year” award in the Project Finance category from International Financial Law Review. DLA Piper advised BTG Pactual as arranger and placement agent of the US$132.8 million project bond offering by Eten to finance a 20-year concession to build, develop, operate and maintain a new thermal cold reserve power plant, transmission line and related infrastructure in the Reque district in the province of Chiclayo, Peru.

Last month, the Eten transaction was also recognized as “Latin American Project Bond Deal of the Year” and “Overall Latin American Deal of the Year” by Project Finance Magazine.
