Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Represents IUSA in the Sale of the Assets of its United Copper Industries Subsidiary

(NEW YORK – September 28, 2011) – Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf LLP represented Industrias Unidas, S.A. de C.V. (IUSA), one of the largest conglomerates in Mexico, in the successful sale of substantially all of the assets of one of its U.S. operating subsidiaries, United Copper Industries, Inc. (UCI). UCI was sold to a new company owned by funds managed by KPS Partners, L.P. UCI is a leading manufacturer and distributor of building wire and cable used in the construction of industrial, residential and commercial buildings in North America.

IUSA intends to use the net proceeds of the sale to repay some of the indebtedness incurred in connection with the successful cross border debt restructuring it concluded earlier in September.

The attorney team included partners Frederick Lark, Michael Fitzgerald, Joy Gallup and associates Brendan Dignan and Janice Parmar, among others.

Mr. Fitzgerald stated that “This strategic M&A transaction is a continuation of the company’s long term strategy of fortifying its capital structure following a period of weakness in the U.S. and Mexican construction sector. Having recently restructured its debt in what some observers have called one of the most successful cross border debt restructurings of the year, IUSA is wasting no time in shoring up its financial position by disposing of non core assets and using the proceeds to deleverage by repaying relatively high cost debt.”

IUSA will continue to operate as one of the largest conglomerates in Mexico with significant U.S. manufacturing capabilities in the U.S., manufacturing and distributing copper-based and electrical products for the housing and electrical power markets.
