Case Study

An AUD denominated fund was selling a New Zealand based portfolio company and the sale required government approval. The transaction value was approximately NZD500m with debt in multiple currencies and associated interest rate swaps.

The private equity firm was very concerned about the foreign exchange risk between commercial terms of the sale being agreed and the final closing of the deal, which was contingent on government approval.
