BKM and Gross Brown advise on $30m financing for Rutas del Este

BKM Berkemeyer has advised Rutas del Este on a financing in its favour for the development of a construction project. The loan was granted by Banco Sudameris, advised by Gross Brown.

This transaction was closed on 6 September, where Rutas del Este received the loan in the amount of US$29,800,000.

The funds will be used to finance the additional work on Route PY02 “Nueva Variante Itacurubí de la Cordillera”, and the maintenance and operation of national routes N° 2 and 7.

This is the first public-private partnership project in Paraguay and the first financing obtained by Rutas del Este.
