For the second part of the transaction, Cuatrecasas advised Minor International in Portugal on buying the properties where the Tivoli Lisbon, Tivoli Marina de Vilamoura, Tivoli Marina de Portimão and Tivoli Carvoeiro operate from the GESPATRIMÓNIO Fund, managed by GNB, and on buying the property where the Tivoli Gare do Oriente hotel operates from the IMOSOCIAL Fund, managed by Selecta.

The third and final part of the transaction concluded on February 1 with court approval of the plans for the recovery of Hotéis Tivoli, S.A. and Marinotéis S.A., which included payments to creditors and the assuming of all liabilities by the buyers. With this last part of the transaction, Minor acquired the hotel business and all the properties of the Tivoli Jardim and Tivoli Sintra hotels, the Palácio de Seteais concession, and the shares held by Hotéis Tivoli, S.A. in its subsidiaries.
