FFP's successful first bond issue:
a Euro Private Placement of 8-year bonds
FFP has successfully completed its first bond issue: a Euro Private Placement consisting of €155 million of 8-year bonds (maturing in July 2025) paying an annual coupon of 2.500%.
The issue's settlement date is expected to be Monday 3 July. The bonds have been placed with leading European investors and they will be listed on Euronext Access (ISIN FR0013265485). The proceeds from the issue will be used to finance the company's development.
Alongside its traditional bank financing, this first bond issue will extend the average maturity of FFP's debt, while diversifying its lender base to include institutional investors.
CM-CIC and Natixis were joint bookrunners for the issue.
Robert Peugeot made the following comments: "The success of this bond issue shows the confidence that investors have in FFP's investment strategy and our teams, as well as in our robust financial profile. It illustrates FFP's ability to take advantage of favourable market conditions, in order to increase the average maturity of our debt on attractive terms. The issue allows us to diversify our funding sources, giving us additional flexibility to seize any opportunities that may arise."
