Corporate bonds were issued at par with an annual interest rate of 9.50% and a maturity in 2026. Bonds were issued in the form of a Private Placement to European professional investors following a series of investor meetings with professional investors across Europe. The proceeds will be used to refinance existing liabilities which includes EUR 100 million outstanding Eurobond and other, as well as it will help to further optimize Eleving Group’s cost of borrowing and support the Company’s further growth.
Modestas Sudnius, CEO of Eleving Group: “We are grateful to existing and new investors who supported us and showed trust in our company. We are pleased and proud that investors from all over Europe invested in our Company with exceptionally strong demand coming from the Baltic region. This marks another very important milestone in Company’s history and secures stable financing for the Company for the foreseeable future. We will continue developing our mobility and financing platform while introducing new products and investing in digitalization.”
Maris Kreics, CFO of Eleving Group: “This is a landmark event not only for the Eleving Group but for the Baltic capital markets as a whole, due to the notable size of EUR 150 million attracted by a Company with a local capital and headquartered in Latvia. We hope that this event will help to significantly broaden the investors’ base for our Company as we expect that after the listing in the exchange the bonds will become available for both institutions as well as private individuals. “
The new bonds are expected to be included in the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on or about 18 October 2021. The new bond is aimed to be listed on a Regulated Market four months thereafter. For more convenient trade and accessibility for private investors, Eleving Group bonds are expected to be also listed on Nasdaq Riga Stock Exchange.
