Importance of the Deal - summary

(E.g.: setting legal precedent, complexity, money involved)

Use of structured financings in the capital markets is a trend the agribusiness sector will follow to provide the necessary funds it needs to comply with the demand within the following years. And the CRA is a strong instrument to allow such financings to occur through securitization transactions. This is the first registered public offering of CRA in our capital markets, and it is a groundbreaking structure which will help other transactions to come.
