Given a BBB+ (outlook stable) rating by Standard & Poor's, Icade has been able
to benefit from particularly attractive margins for its inaugural issue,

cost of its debt.
Serge Grzybowski explains"Just as announced, we have launched our first bond
issue soon after closing the deal on Silic. We are very happy with the
conditions in which these two loans have been issued today, conditions which
have allowed us to take an important step forward in the consolidation of our
model while merging with Silic."
