AROUNDTOWN AND ITS SUBSIDIARY AT SECURITIES BV SUCCESSFULLY PLACE USD 200 MILLION IN A TAP OF THE USD PERPETUAL SUBORDINATED NOTES
26 September 2017
Aroundtown SA ("Aroundtown") and its wholly-owned subsidiary AT Securities BV announce today the successful tap placement of the original USD 500,000,000 perpetual subordinated notes (ISIN: XS1634523754) (the Existing Perpetual Notes) by the issue of USD 200 million additional perpetual subordinated notes (the New Perpetual Notes).
The New Perpetual Notes will have the same terms and conditions as the Existing Perpetual Notes and will form a single consolidated series with the Existing Perpetual Notes. Following settlement, the aggregate nominal amount of the Perpetual Notes in issue will be increased to USD 700 million. The New Perpetual Notes will be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Irish Stock Exchange. The Company will create a cross currency swap from USD into Euro in order to avoid currency risk, and to keep its effective exposure in Euro currency.
Aroundtown intends to use the amount raised by the issue of the New Perpetual Notes to fund Aroundtown's growth strategy and to re-finance and/or repay existing debt.
