The deal was secured with USD185 million cash, USD17.5 million in unsecured promissory notes issued by Erickson, and approximately four million newly-issued preference shares.
Udo Rieder, Erickson Air-Crane ceo, commented: "We expect to quickly follow this transaction with the closing of our planned acquisition of Air Amazonia, which is squarely focused on the fast-growing South American oil and gas market."
