Monday, October 22, 2012

The Costa Rican government announced that Citigroup and Deutsche Bank will be responsible for technical advice for the placement of up to $4 billion in Eurobonds.

Both their technical as well as economic proposals were the most favorable for the country, according to information from the Deputy Minister of Investment and Public Credit, Juan Carlos Pacheco.

The law firm responsible for the legal advice process is Arnold & Porter LLP.

The details of the placement in terms of amounts and dates were not disclosed because of restrictions in the rules of the U.S. stock market.

Under Costa Rican law, the government can place up to 1 billion dollars per year and the maximum is 4 billion.
