International Tax Review (ITR) honored global law firm White & Case LLP with two 'Impact Deal Awards' among its ITR Americas Tax Awards 2022.
The deals honored were:
- Nubank IPO
White & Case represented the underwriters on Nubank's US$2.6 billion dual initial public offering in New York and São Paulo. At the offer price, Nubank had a market capitalization of approximately US$42 billion, making it the most valuable listed financial institution in Latin America, the largest IPO by a Brazilian company since 2017 and the largest IPO by a Latin American company in 2021.
- Canadian Pacific Railway acquisition of Kansas City Southern
White & Case represented Kansas City Southern (KCS), the main cross-border railroad operator between the US and Mexico., on its merger with Canadian Pacific Railway (CP). Under the merger agreement, CP agreed to acquire KCS in a stock and cash transaction representing an enterprise value of circa US$31 billion, which includes the assumption of US$3.8 billion of outstanding KCS debt. The merger created the first US-Mexico-Canada integrated rail network, with a new single-line offering that will deliver dramatically expanded market reach for CP and KCS customers.
