TORONTO — White & Case has announced its representation in the sale of $11 billion in Canadian government-backed bonds, which the firm said is the largest bond issue in Canadian history and one of the largest sales of AAA-rated bonds by an entity other than a U.S. government-related issuer. White & Case advised Canada Housing Trust as issuer and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation as guarantor of the offering in the sale of Canada Mortgage Bonds to foreign and domestic buyers. “The unprecedented size of this bond issue clearly demonstrates the extent to which investors and Canada’s mortgage industry have embraced Canada Mortgage Bonds as a way to enhance the supply of low-cost mortgage funds in Canada and provide the mortgage market with an alternative and competitive source of funds,” Kevin Keogh, a New York-based partner who led the team working on the deal, said in a news release. The Canadian debt offering represents the second record-breaking deal involving White & Case’s capital markets/securities practice in as many weeks. On March 19, the firm advised on Visa’s $19.7 billion initial public offering, the largest in U.S. history. White & Case has more than 2,300 lawyers in 37 offices in 25 countries.
