Höganäs, 21 March 2017
Jefast has decided to issue a 4-year senior unsecured bond loan in the amount of SEK 200m. The bond loan will carry a floating rate interest of Stibor 3m + 5.45% and has a total framework amount of SEK 500m. Jefast will apply for a listing of the bond loan on Nasdaq Stockholm. The proceeds from the bond issue will be used for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions of properties in Sweden and refinancing of outstanding debt.
“We are very happy to have successfully placed our second bond loan in the Nordic corporate bond market. This follows a book building process which rendered the book being significantly oversubscribed. It is further encouraging that the market recognizes our positive development in the past year-and-a-half by enabling us to issue a more standardized senior unsecured bond loan at a notably lower interest than our first bond loan. This marks a very encouraging beginning of our 40-year anniversary”, says chairman and founder Bo Jertshagen.
Carnegie Investment Bank has been the financial advisor and Roschier has been the legal advisor in conjunction with the issuance of the new bond loan.
