Conyers provided a Bermuda law legal opinion in respect of an amended security agreement entered into by Guara Norte Holdings Ltd. in connection with a consent solicitation by Guara Norte S.à r.l.
In February 2021, Guara Norte S.à r.l. had issued 5.198% senior secured notes due 2034 in an aggregate principal amount of US$850 million. In order to amend certain of the transaction documents, the issuer launched a consent solicitation from the holders of the notes.
In May 2023, the issuer was advised that it had received consents from holders of more than 50% of the notes then outstanding for the adoption of the proposed amendments, at which time Guara Norte Holdings Ltd. was required to enter into an amended security agreement.
