Muhammad Faisal Laghari, a managing director in Citigroup’s global energy investment banking team, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Laghari helped lead the execution part of the $55 billion acquisition of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. by Occidental Petroleum Corp. for Citi. He worked closely with colleague and global co-head of energy for Citi Stephen Trauber, who spearheaded the bank’s various deal teams.
“It was a great deal to be a part of, not just because of the size, but because of the complexity,” Laghari says. “We delivered the entire bank for this deal, from M&A advisory to committed financing, liability management and hedging, highlighting Citi’s breadth of capabilities.”
The deal was the culmination of two years of hard work and perseverance. It was the largest North American acquisition the energy world has witnessed in the past 20 years, and one in which Citi played an instrumental role.
