We are quickly delivering on the expansion strategy that we presented during our initial public offering earlier this year," said Alexandre Saigh, Patria's CEO. "The transaction will be accretive to earnings per share within the first year."

The combined platform will manage over US$ 9.7 billion in Private Equity, US$ 5.5 billion in Credit (including US$650 million exposure to Private Credit), US$ 5.1 billion in Infrastructure, US$ 2.0 billion in Advisory & Distribution, US$ 3.0 billion in PIPE and Public Equities and US$ 500 million in Real Estate investments, in most cases with top quartile returns.

"Complementary is the word that defines this transaction," said Olimpio Matarazzo, senior managing partner and chairman of the board at Patria. "The product offerings and the geographical and currency exposures are a perfect fit. Patria is a leader in Private Equity and Infrastructure investments in Latin America, and Moneda is the top credit investor in the region. In addition, both companies have a similar culture, based on partnership and exceptional client service."

"This combination will leverage Moneda's outstanding track record and deal sourcing capabilities to lead the development of private credit in Latin America with unique local expertise while also continuing to develop our strategic investments in public equities in the region," said Pablo Echeverría, Moneda's chairman.

"With Patria, we will have the opportunity to expand our cross selling of products, leveraging a complementary investor base," said Alfonso Duval, Moneda's CEO. "It is worth noting that both companies are partnerships led by like-minded, entrepreneurial teams. There's been a strong cultural alignment among the teams since the onset," said Mr. Duval.

Under the agreement, Moneda partners will receive an upfront consideration of US$ 315 million, in a combination of US$ 128 million in cash and US$ 187 million in PAX Class B common stock. There will be an additional consideration payable in years two and three after closing, subject to certain retention metrics for Moneda's partners, and a potential earnout payable after 2023, in a combination of cash and PAX Class A common stock, subject to the achievement of certain revenue and profitability targets.


In connection with the transaction, Patria retained JP Morgan Chase & Co, as financial advisor, Simpson Thacher & Barlett LLP, as transaction counsel, and Carey Abogados, as Chilean counsel. Moneda retained Servicios Financieros Altis S.A., as financial advisor, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, as transaction counsel, and Barros & Errazuriz Abogados, as Chilean counsel.
