Experience

Energy, Infrastructure, Project and Asset Finance Group:

Representation of the sponsors on the project financing of the Nacala railway and port project in Mozambique and Malawi.

Representation of Saudi Aramco in the PetroRabigh Phase 2 expansion project, a refinery and petrochemical project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Representation of New World Resources in its comprehensive, cross-border balance sheet restructuring, allowing NWR to focus on its operational turnaround and survive the prolonged downturn in the global coking and thermal coal markets. This transaction involved a UK scheme of arrangement and a rights issue and placing on the London, Warsaw and Prague Stock Exchanges, drawing on a complex mix of capability across mining, restructuring, debt and equity capital markets, corporate and tax. NWR is one of the largest hard coal producers in Central Europe and a major employer in the Czech Republic.

Dayle worked as part of the team of the Firm's lawyers which advised European rolling stock operating lessor Alpha Trains on the acquisition of 202 rolling stock assets from The Royal Bank of Scotland PLC (RBS), in a combined asset and share sale transaction. The assets had been managed by Alpha Trains on behalf of RBS since a consortium of investors acquired Alpha Trains from RBS in 2008. The transaction's financing, security package and sale mechanics were particularly complex, due to the number of assets involved and the cross-border nature of their operation.
