We introduced and negotiated the acquisition of a portfolio of B notes on behalf of our client for €3m, 24% of face value. The acquisition was made through a tax efficient structure enabling gains from sales of the B notes to be sheltered.
Of the €3m, €1m was paid back through cash flow within a year. We recently introduced the sale of one of the B notes to a fund for 65% of its face value, returning the remaining investment of €2m and realising a profit of €1.5m. We are now in the process of negotiating sales of the remaining B notes all of which will be additional profit for the client.
Total projected return of €6m, 200% on equity.
