Hogan Lovells advises Bilfinger Berger Global Infrastructure SICAV on £85m equity raising

Hogan Lovells has advised Bilfinger Berger Global Infrastructure SICAV (BBGI) on its successful placing, open offer and offer for subscription raising £85m, announced on 12 July 2013.

The law firm previously advised BBGI on its initial public offering in December 2011, the first-ever Luxembourg SICAV to be admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority as a closed-ended fund, and recently announced and closed a further equity raise, which was significantly oversubscribed.

BBGI invests in PFI/PPP projects around the world and this latest equity raise will fund the acquisition of further interests in PFI/PPP infrastructure projects from the Bilfinger group.

The Hogan Lovells team advising BBGI was led by London investment funds partner Erik Jamieson, assisted by tax partners Kevin Ashman in London and Michael Dettmeier in Dusseldorf, infrastructure partner Philip Brown and investment funds senior associate Amelia Stawpert.
