Pérez Alati Grondona Benitez & Amsten has assisted the arrangers and underwriters in the issuance of Series I and Series II Public Debt Securities of the Municipality of Córdoba, advised by Tavarone Rovelli Salim & Miani (TRSYM).

The issuance took place on 27 October, where the debt securities were regulated by Resolution N°1064/2022 dated 18 October 2022 of the Secretariat of Economy and Finance of the Municipality, in accordance with the powers delegated by Decree N°17/2021 and Ordinance N°13.221 dated 29 December 2021.

The Series I Debt Securities were issued for a nominal amount of $2,000,000,000, at a nominal annual variable rate equivalent to the Badlar Rate plus a margin of 7.75%, maturing on October 27, 2025; while the Series II were issued for a nominal amount of $846,069,500, at a nominal annual variable rate equivalent to the Badlar Rate plus a margin of 8.50%, maturing on October 27, 2026.
