Nexus launches asset-backed securities fund on Spanish Alternative Fixed-Income Market (MARF) for €50 million


Cuatrecasas advised Nexus Energía, S.A. on launching the asset-backed securities fund HT NEXUS, FT to obtain financing from the credit rights arising from its energy marketing activity. The fund will be able to make issues for up to a maximum of €50 million, carried out through a commercial paper program listed on the Spanish Alternative Fixed-Income Market (“MARF”). Axesor rated the program 'A- (sf).'

The incorporation of HT Nexus FT and the program’s register on MARF will enable Nexus to obtain regular financing at competitive interest rates for the purchase of energy using the resources obtained from interested investors who will acquire promissory notes backed against their Coface-insured invoices pending collection.

The Swiss bank Mirabaud acted as the transaction’s structurer and global coordinator, and the fund will be managed by Haya Titulización, S.G.F.T., S.A., which will also act as a registered advisor once the program is registered on MARF. Cuatrecasas lawyers Miguel Cruz and Alfonso Peña advised Nexus.
