International Finance Corp. (IFC) and the IFC African, Latin American and Caribbean Fund have made a joint $100 million equity investment in InterEnergy Holdings, in the latest move in the busy energy M&A sector.

InterEnergy Holdings owns and operates power generation assets in Latin America and the Caribbean. The deal should help IFC expand its operations in Latin America.

Each party contributed $50 million for the deal, which should also help InterEnergy diversify the Dominican Republic’s energy sources.

IFC is a Washington, D.C.-based global development institution. The IFC Fund is a $1 billion investment fund managed by IFC Asset Management Co. LLC.

Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP was InterEnergy’s counsel for the equity investments.

Other recent energy deals include Ameresco Inc.'s (NYSE: AMRC) purchase of Ennovate Corp.'s assets and Sinochem Petroleum USA LLC's purchase of assets in the Wolfcamp shale play.
