GOL Linhas AÃ©reas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and B3: GOLL4) has received the 2017 Airline Treasury Team of the Year Award, the company said.
The award was given by the editorial board of Airfinance Journal (AFJ) and recognizes the company´s efforts in right-sizing its balance sheet, enhancing its liquidity and culminating in the USD 500 million unsecured bond issue.
GOL´s benchmark issue was arranged by global coordinators BofA Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, and Morgan Stanley and joint bookrunners BTG Pactual, Evercore ISI, Santander, BCP Securities and Safra.
The USD 500 million unsecured bond issuance, which was later re-opened for an additional USD 150 million (raising the total outstanding to USD 650 million) established a number of records for GOL and the sector´s unsecured capital markets.
GOL is Brazil´s largest airline, carrying 33 million passengers annually on more than 700 daily flights to 65 destinations, 54 in Brazil and 11 in South America and the Caribbean, on a fleet of 120 Boeing 737 aircraft, with a further 120 Boeing 737 MAX on order.
