In a recent transaction we advised a pillar bank in relation to the finance of a large energy infrastructure project in Ireland. As part of this transaction, we carried out a full corporate due diligence and uncovered that the borrower had taken on board EIIS (Employment Incentive and Investment Scheme) funds from third party investors. Following our review of documents pursuant to which the investors had advanced funds to the borrower, we ensured that all repayment arrangements with such investors were fully and effectively subordinated to the Bank’s debt.
