Hochtief, Meridiam seal $1.1bn Presidio PPP
Nossaman is mentioned and Infrastructure Practice Group Co-Chair Geoffrey Yarema quoted in the Infrastructure Investor article "Hochtief, Meridiam seal $1.1bn Presidio PPP" discussing the financial close for the $1.1 billion Presidio Parkway Project, California's first transportation public-private partnership. A Nossaman team, led by Barney Allison, advised the California Department of Transportation on the procurement, financing and contracts for the project. The $1.1 billion deal will be the first transportation P3 in California under the recently enacted P3 statute, Streets and Highways Code section 143, and only the third highway project developed through an availability payment structure.
Mr. Yarema was quoted as saying, "This project proves that California can make needed transportation improvements using P3s [PPPs] and demonstrates the true value of a P3 delivery method."
Nossaman's press release has also been posted to nearly 140 online outlets, including MSNBC, Reuters, MarketWatch, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Yahoo! Finance.
