SSEK Legal Consultants has acted as Indonesian counsel to Daewoo International Corporation in connection with a US$210 million funding for the expansion of Australia-listed Finders Resources' copper cathode plants (known as the Wetar Copper Project) in Indonesia's Maluku Province.
This US$210 million funding consists of a credit approved commitment letter with a group of four banks for US$165 million of senior loan facilities and a US$45 million equity investment by Daewoo in Finders' wholly owned Indonesian subsidiary, PT Batutua Tembaga Raya, which holds the Wetar Copper Project. Daewoo will hold a 24.1% economic interest in PT Batutua Tembaga Raya.
This complex deal involved the acquisition of shares in PT Batutua Tembaga Raya and the financing of the project held by the miner, as well as advising on various mining issues.
Partner Denny Rahmansyah led the SSEK team advising on the deal. Yulchon LLC acted as foreign legal counsel to Daewoo International Corporation.
