NEW YORK, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Orazul Energy Egenor S. en C. por A. ("the Company" or "Orazul Peru"), a Lima, Peru-based subsidiary of Orazul Energy and a portfolio company of I Squared Capital (or "I Squared"), today announced the closing of its $550 million offering of 5.625% 10-year bonds due in 2027 ("the bonds"), payable semiannually.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to refinance an existing acquisition loan facility and existing debt at the Company level. These proceeds will ultimately streamline and simplify the Company's current capital structure, enabling the management team to better execute its corporate strategy.

"With this refinancing, Orazul Peru is even better positioned to expand the energy matrix in the country," said Raul E. Espinoza, President of Orazul Peru. "We are the only integrated power generator with gas production in Peru and a diversified portfolio of assets, including hydro and thermal generation of more than 550 megawatts of capacity, 740 kilometers of electricity transmission lines, as well as natural gas production and processing facilities."
The offering was led by I Squared Capital in close partnership with the Orazul Energy portfolio management team, as well as the Orazul Peru executive leadership team.
Deutsche Bank and Credicorp Capital acted as Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners. Citi, Morgan Stanley, and Scotiabank acted as Joint Bookrunners.
