CMS advises Blackstone on its investment in Carrix

We are incredibly pleased to have contributed with CMS’s experience to an investor of the stature of Blackstone.
Jorge Allende Destuet

Blackstone announced its growth-oriented investment in Carrix through its affiliates, BIP Mercury and Blackstone Infrastructure Partners, in March 2019. Carrix is one of the largest independent, private marine terminal operators in the world, with activities in over 250 terminal facilities and rail operations in Canada, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, South Africa, the US and Vietnam.

In Chile, CMS advised Blackstone Infrastructure Partners. The CMS team was led by Jorge Allende Destuet, Co-Head of the Corporate / M & A team in Santiago. “We are incredibly pleased to have contributed with CMS’s experience to an investor of the stature of Blackstone. This investment reflects Blackstone´s trust in the LatAm region,” he said.

Blackstone is one of the world’s most successful investment firms with approximately USD 571bn of assets under management according to its 2019 full-year financial results. Blackstone Infrastructure Partners was launched in 2017 with a USD 20bn long-term matching anchor commitment from the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.

Blackstone’s investment in Carrix involved business operations in Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Panama and the US.
