The Mintz team accomplished this negotiation through its long-standing relationship with Aspen, which dates back to 2010, and its comprehensive understanding of the company’s goals. Mintz represented Aspen during its initial public offering (IPO) as well as through numerous additional financings and strategic partnerships targeting new product and market opportunities.
Mintz represented Boston Metal, a producer of industrial-scale, zero-emissions metals, in its $20M Series A Financing led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures and with Prelude Ventures and The Engine.
Mintz partnered with private equity firm Spring Lane Capital to develop a novel project financing model. Mintz also provided legal guidance on Spring Lane’s first investments, including a vehicle to finance the equity portion of waste gasification project deals.
Mintz helped long-term client Aspen Aerogels expand its strategic partnership with BASF. The new partnership terms include a supply agreement for one of Aspen’s insulation products and financing to help Aspen expand its capacity and develop new aerogel products.
Mintz has represented product coating and additive maker NBD Nano since 2013 on matters including financings led by Phoenix Venture Partners and BASF. Mintz also assists NBD with joint development agreements.
