Wolf Theiss has advised UniCredit Bank Austria, CaixaBank, La Banque Postale, and Bondholders SL on a EUR 113 million syndicated financing for RML Infrastruktur for the roll-out, operation, and maintenance of an open-access fiber-to-the-home network in Austria's Liezen district. PHH reportedly advised Meridiam.
RML Infrastruktur is a subsidiary of European infrastructure investor Meridiam. A minority holding in RML is owned by a public entity held by the municipalities of the Liezen district.
According to Wolf Theiss, the network will provide approximately 54,000 buildings in the Liezen region with high-speed fiber-optic connectivity. In addition to the financing, the project is also subsidized by the European Union and the Republic of Austria.
The Wolf Theiss team included Partners Andreas Schmid and Claus Schneider, Senior Associate Markus Aigner, and Associate Ivan Ivanov.
