Sale of Bons Ventos to CPFL Energias Renováveis

Building a Renewable Energy Giant

Goldman Sachs served as the sole financial advisor to the shareholders of energy company Bons Ventos — owner of four wind farms in the state of Ceará — during its $541 million sale to CPFL Energias Renováveis. This transaction pairs a smaller niche industry company with the leading renewable player in Brazil, and enables Bons Ventos to benefit from CPFL Energias Renováveis’ strong management team, operational expertise and greater financial capacity to help further scale clean energy.
