Cleary Gottlieb acted for Suzano in the reopening of $200 million 5.750 percent senior notes due 2026 and $200 million 7.000 percent senior notes due 2047.
Suzano is one of the largest pulp and paper producers in Latin America. It is headquartered in Brazil and has operations in over 80 countries.
The offering was the first time that Suzano has tapped the notes, and Cleary had also represented the issuer in connection with each offering.
The initial purchasers of the additional notes were JP Morgan Securities, Santander Investment Securities, BB Securities, Itau BBA USA Securities, and Mizuho Securities USA.
Suzano intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the 2026 notes for eligible green projects, and the net proceeds of the 2047 notes will be used to fund a concurrent tender offer to purchase up to $150 million of 5.875 percent senior notes due 2021.
