Machado Meyer and BMA on the acquisition of CFC by Treecorp

Machado Meyer advised Treecorp Partners Gestora on subscription of equity participation, through two investment vehicles (Coxa Fundo de Investimento em Participações Multiestratégia and Treecorp Fundo de Investimento em Participações III Multiestratégia), representing 90% of the stock capital of Coritiba Sociedade Anônima do Futebol. BMA advised Coritiba Foot Ball Club.

The investors also undertook an obligation to refurbish Coritiba’s stadium, at an approximate cost of R$ 500 million, and to pay the club’s current debt, at an approximate amount of R$ 250 million.

The transaction’s overall value might exceed R$ 1.3 billion reais, considering the investor’s contributions, the club’s own revenue generation and raising funds from third parties.
