    ICA Partners provided strategic advice to Spark regarding the financing of its 15.01% equity contribution. Spark financed the acquisition via a fully underwritten entitlement offer, renewed corporate debt facilities and cash on hand.

    Following this, ICA Partners also advised Spark Infrastructure for its bid on Endeavour Energy in 2017.
