Grondal Bruining Update: Corporate and Commercial

Found in: Blog

Grondal Bruining's commercial and corporate team had a busy first quarter, advising on various domestic and international projects, including two market leading deals, one advising Superior Gold on their debt financing, and the other Lacour's sale of Kondinin.

Superior Gold's completion of a A$10 million debt financing with Auramet International will provide enhanced financial flexibility for the company to manage their cash flow during this time of volatility.

Lacour Energy's sale of the Kondinin hybrid project was to Shell and Foresight Group. Kondinin is a project with development approvals for up to 230MW wind, 80MW solar and 60MW/120MWh battery storage, and was developed by Lacour Energy and Goldwind. The sale will enable Lacour Energy to focus on current and future renewable energy development projects.

Grondal Bruining Principal, Gary Thomas said "The first quarter of this financial year has continued to highlight the importance of strategic decisions, financial forecasting, debt management and M&A. It will continue to be important to plan and prepare for further volatility and challenges.  Looking to the second half of the year, there is a high degree of uncertainty about where Australia and the broader world will be placed economically, and what that will mean for us all.  But as has been the case in the past, while there will certainly be some challenges, there will also be opportunities for those who are well prepared.  The team at Grondal Bruining appreciate the opportunity to assist our clients navigating these times, including to realise the opportunities that will be out there."
