Agustin R. Montilla IV is a partner in the Mergers, Acquisitions & Capital Markets practice of Romulo.  He has been finding solutions for financial institutions, private equity clients and corporates for almost two decades. His experience has been built on international securities offerings, restructuring, takeovers, take-privates and cross-border acquisitions. Early challenges included the groundbreaking Piltel debt restructuring, which remains largest in the Philippines to have ever been successfully concluded on a consensual basis.  He also led Romulo’s team that worked on an unprecedented auction of the former eTelecare, that involved Philippine and US tender offers, requiring compliance with incongruent requirements. More recently he advised the buyers in the acquisition that created the largest chained casual dining restaurant company and the subsequent public offer of the Max’s Group, Inc.
