IG4 has inked a deal with Brazil's CGG Trading and its creditors to purchase CLI, which owns one of the largest grain terminals in the country in Itaqui's northern port, the private equity fund announced on Thursday, Reuters reported.


The deal includes the restructuring of US$236 million in debt owed by CGG Trading and conversion of part of the debt into equity.
