The transaction was structured into two layers, with the underlying funds contributed by a senior lender, GAW Capital Partners (GAW) and other junior lenders with PACM. Upper Genius Limited (UGL) is a newly established Special Purpose Vehicle which is jointly owned by PACM and GAW, which acted as the immediate lender to HNA. This transaction is unique in its senior-junior structure and the tailored mechanism to govern the lenders’ priorities and respective interests.
Appleby advised PACM on the financing from a BVI law perspective and assisted them throughout the transaction as offshore counsel. The transaction was led by Partner Fiona Chan and supported by Associate Karina Li.
Fiona Chan commented: “We are delighted to have advised PACM on this unique transaction which further cements the Appleby Hong Kong team’s reputation as specialists in loan financing transactions.”
