Secuoya Content Group (“Secuoya” or the “Company”) operates continuously in four markets (United States, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East), with offices in Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, Bogota, Santiago de Chile, Lima, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Madrid.
Prudential’s relationship with Secuoya started in 2020, when we closed a direct lending transaction with the Company to support a refinancing via a Senior Secured Term Loan and a Delayed Draw Term Loan. Since our initial transaction, we have maintained a very strong working relationship with Secuoya who continued to appreciate our diverse range of capital solutions. When a junior capital financing need arose in the form of the MBO, we worked with management to structure a deal that paired well with our existing senior direct lending investment.
In July 2023, we closed the financing of €35.5 million of Holdco Notes, in conjunction with amending and extending our existing senior direct lending commitments. The proceeds of the HoldCo Notes were used to support management in their purchase of the stake of majority shareholder Alantra.
Secuoya decided to partner with us given our i) certainty of execution given our previous knowledge on the Company, ii) capacity to provide a unique and flexible financing solution, and iii) the historical relationship and mutual trust.
We are proud to continue to partner with Secuoya, and we look forward to supporting the business as it executes on its aspirations in the years to come.
