AINMT Scandinavia Holdings AS - successful placement of NOK senior unsecured bond issue
Oslo, 9 March 2017 - Further to the announcement of the underwritten secured bank facilities and a contemplated bond issue on 8 March 2017, AINMT Scandinavia Holdings AS ("AINMT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a successful placement of a new 5 year NOK 800 million senior unsecured bond issue. The placement was significantly oversubscribed.
The Company has also decided to issue a notice of early redemption for the outstanding SEK 1.5 billion senior secured bonds maturing in March 2019 with ISIN NO 0010705601 (the "SEK Bonds").
The new bond is a part of a refinancing into a corporate financing structure comprising of secured bank facilities underwritten by DNB Bank ASA and the new unsecured bond issue, which yields significant increased flexibility for the Company going forward and reduces interest costs from 9.75% in the SEK Bonds to a blended debt financing cost of NIBOR +4.80% across the committed underwritten secured bank facilities and the new bond issue at the point of the refinancing, with a potential for further reduction in financing cost on the secured bank facilities subject to certain conditions.
DNB Markets and Pareto Securities acted as arrangers of the bond issue.
