PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Sopra Steria (Paris:SOP) has announced that today it has placed a new €250m Euro PP bond issue with top-tier European institutional investors.
The issue was a major success and was largely oversubscribed. The bonds will comprise two tranches: one 7‑year €130m tranche bearing an annual coupon of 1.749%, and one 8-year €120m tranche bearing an annual coupon of 2.000%. They will be admitted for trading on Euronext Access as from 5 July 2019.
This bond issue, which was completed under favourable conditions for Sopra Steria, enables the Group to extend the maturity of its borrowings and continue its strategy of diversifying its sources of financing. This long- term financing will allow Sopra Steria to pursue its growth ambitions.
The proceeds from this bond issue will be partly used to refinance the existing Euro PP bond issued in 2013 for an amount of €180m, with an annual coupon of 4.250%, maturing in July 2019.
The issue was arranged by Natixis and Société Générale.
