BOGOTÁ (June 14, 2024) – Holland & Knight advised six Colombian creditors, including Banco de Bogotá S.A., Banco de Occidente S.A., Itaú Colombia S.A., Banco Santander de Negocios Colombia S.A., Bancolombia S.A. and Instituto para el Desarrollo de Antioquia, on a 191.5 billion Colombian pesos (approximately US$48.6 million) debt reprofiling agreement with Construcciones El Cóndor S.A. The agreement, under which some of the debt obligations that Construcciones El Cóndor has with the creditors will be consolidated, was signed on June 7.

On the same date, an additional agreement was signed and added to the corporate credit agreement granted by Bancolombia S.A. on June 27, 2023, for a value of 62 billion Colombian pesos (approximately US$15.7 million).

This closing completes the reprofiling of the vast majority of Construcciones El Cóndor's structured debt and working capital that had been implemented with respect to the company's other long-term debt agreements, in which Holland & Knight also advised the creditors, including Davivienda S.A., Machinery Corporation of America Inc., Bancolombia S.A., Banco de Occidente S.A. and Banco de Bogotá S.A.
