Department profile submitted by G. Elias & Co

G. Elias & Co’s Banking and Finance department is well-known for its expertise in financing transactions of different nature. One out of the numerous worthy of mention is pre-export financings in the oil and gas sector. We have, over the years, gained extensive experience in navigating the regulatory web of the oil and gas sector, which is required for providing syndicates of both foreign and local lenders the necessary guidance and comfort needed for these transactions.

We have advised on numerous syndicated, “hard currency” and other lendings in a wide range of sectors of the economy. These include the financings of shares and asset acquisitions, sales of commodities and projects, unstructured financings of petroleum acreage operators and acreage producers, loans by and to development finance institutions, lines of credit to banks, global depository receipt programmes, equity and debt offerings, securitizations and reorganisations of managed funds.
