BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carmila (Paris:CARM) is to launch a tender offer for an amount of €300 million – which may be revised at Carmila’s discretion – on bonds maturing on 18 September 2023 and representing a residual amount of €600 million, and on bonds maturing on 16 September 2024 and representing a residual amount of €587.8 million. The Group is also announcing its plan to issue a new bond for €300 million upon expiry of said tender offer.
These operations will enable Carmila to (i) optimise its bond maturities by redeeming its shorter-term bond debt and issuing longer-term bonds in its place, (ii) limit the surplus cash generated by the operation, and (iii) manage its borrowing costs.
The offer is subject to the terms and conditions set out in the Tender Offer Memorandum dated 16 November 2020.
The new bond issue will be launched if Carmila considers that enough bondholders participate in the tender offer, and provided that market conditions are satisfactory. Priority allocation rights to the new issue may apply for bondholders tendering their bonds to the offer, at Carmila’s sole and total discretion.
The tender offer will run from 16 November 2020 to 4:00 p.m. (Paris time) on 20 November 2020.
The results of the offer will be announced at the latest on the date of the new bond issue.
The new bond issue would take place as from 23 November 2020.
Carmila is holding a global investor call to discuss this operation at 2.30 p.m. (Paris time) on 17 November 2020.
