Maples advised aircraft leasing group Avolon on its initial capital raise of US$1.4 billion. The capital raised includes (i) an equity commitment of US$750 million from three of the world’s leading private equity firms, Cinven, CVC and Oak Hill Capital, in one of the most significant capital raises ever within the Irish market and (ii) a US$400 million warehouse facility, the first facility of its type completed since 2007.
