Veolia: bond issue largely oversubscribed to
(CercleFinance.com) - Veolia announces that it has taken advantage of a favourable market window to place 500 million euros of bond matsuring in January 2031, with the issue oversubscribed to almost five times.
This bond, issued at par, bears a coupon of 0.664%.
The oversubscription has made it possible to substantially improve the issue level and obtain better final pricing than the secondary market. The proceeds will be used for general funding needs, including the early repayment of bonds falling due at the end of 2020.
The high level of oversubscription, the quality of investors, their diversity (over 160 orders from Europe and Asia) and the good terms obtained testify to the very positive perception of Veolia's signature and its financial strength, the company said.
