Oaklins' team in Chile advised Iridium during the entire sale process, contacting with a large number of potential investors. It as a complex operation, given the intense activity of corporate transactions in the Chilean infrastructure market. The sale process was carried out simultaneously with the refinancing of the debt of Ruta del Canal, which meant that the financial advisor had to play a very active role in negotiating with the banks in order to adapt the conditions to the needs of the potential investors.
