Challenges

The land contributed into the partnership was owned by the government of Senegal, which faced a lawsuit that threatened to derail the closing process as settlement was necessary to release the subject site. Additionally, new ownership was seeking a quick close utilizing non-recourse bridge financing. 

Solutions
