BAHR – financing advice that adds up

The evolution of finance shows no signs of slowing. With all the new products, new technologies and new regulations, you can often achieve similar results in a number of ways. But in a tightly-controlled market like Norway’s, these can have very different tax and regulatory implications.

That’s where we come in. BAHR commands a thorough knowledge of the region’s finance markets. We regularly advise leading Norwegian and international lenders, borrowers, facilitators and investment funds on structuring complex, big-ticket financial transactions, such as:

  • Advising Aker BP ASA on its refinancing of an existing facility via a US$4 billion investment grade style, jumbo loan.
  • Representing Nordea as agent for a 16-bank syndicate in connection with a new US$672.5 million revolving credit facility for BW Offshore.
  • Advising Okeanis Eco Tankers Corp on the IPO of the company that owns its eco-friendly US$1 billion crude tanker fleet, and its listing on Oslo’s Merkur Market.

Experienced in all forms of debt and equity financing, we assist clients with syndicated loan agreements, acquisition and project financing, securitisation, traditional and high yield bonds and combined bank- and bond-loan structures. On the equity side, we regularly advise on IPOs and stock exchange offerings, as well as a range of complex financial instruments. This is supported by one of the region’s leading financial regulatory practices.
