Always involved in assessments regarding forestry investments. I worked the appraisal of a 80.000 hectares FSC certified forestry group in Northwest Argentina, and Southern Bolivia, in order to be acquired by a Spanish forestry investment group. It included a full due diligence of a multinational forestry company, who had its base in Delaware, US, with some interesting pending legal issues there. I dealt all negotiations with owner, and set all matters of the purchase agreement.
Company had its own sawmills and dryers handled by Bolivian and Argentinean employees, which meant an important issue to ensure change capacity to face the new management approaches. However, in addition to clearing legal issues, the most important challenge was to check project feasibility, considering long distances to loading ports from operational sites, and deficient infrastructures along the country.
