Elis, a leading multi-services group in Europe and Latin America, specializing in the rental and maintenance of professional clothing, textile articles, hygiene and well-being appliances, announced on 8 February that it has raised 1.0 billion euros through a dual-tranche 5- and 8-year bond issue.
- The 5-year tranche raises 650 million euros and offers a 1.875% coupon.
- The 8-year tranche raises 350 million euros and offers a 2.875% coupon.
This successfully priced transaction allows Elis to complete the repayment of the bridge loan that financed the Berendsen acquisition and to lengthen the Group's debt maturity profile.
The very positive reception given to this issue, with a 3.65 billion euros order book, also demonstrates Elis' ability to diversify its sources of financing and underscores investor confidence in its development strategy.
This issue was led by 10 banks: BBVA, BNP Paribas, CA CIB, Commerzbank, HSBC, Natixis, ING, Mediobanca, MUFG, Société Générale.
