Rubicon Infrastructure Advisors (“Rubicon”) continues to successfully execute infrastructure mandates globally having reached financial close in the past 18 months on 14 mandates covering 27 essential infrastructure assets in Europe and North America with a combined enterprise value in excess of €8.0 billion. In 2016, the firm established a global debt advisory business which has secured a number of engagements and is targeting to reach closing on seven debt mandates within the coming months.
As part of Rubicon’s continuing growth strategy and to better service our global client base, we are pleased to announce the establishment of a dedicated global renewable energy advisory business focused on providing investment banking services, such as M&A, equity and debt capital raising as well as divestment advice to the global renewable sector. This new group will be headed by Mr. Barry O’Flynn who recently joined the firm.
Prior to Rubicon, Barry spent 15 years working with global firms such as EY, Mainstream and Airtricity on numerous strategic advisory and capital raising initiatives for international developers, investors, corporates and IPPs across EMEA, Latin America and Asia. Barry has significant experience originating, acquiring and integrating businesses while working closely with management teams, stakeholders, advisors and investors to create value and align long-term interests. Barry led Mainstream’s entry into the South African market where the company is now one of the largest independent IPPs. He previously led Airtricity into the Chinese and Italian markets as well as leading two capital-raises for the company for a combined total of $100M equity.
Barry holds a Master of Business Administration from the Smurfit School of Business (UCD Ireland), a Master of Science (Bioengineering) from the University of Strathclyde, Scotland, and a Bachelor of Engineering (Electronic) from University College Dublin, Ireland. Barry is fluent in English and Italian.
