Polarcus Limited: Polarcus successfully completes new senior unsecured bond
Reference is made to the stock exchange notice published by Polarcus Limited
("Polarcus" or the "Company") (OSE: PLCS) on 24 June 2014 regarding the
contemplated new senior unsecured bond issue.
Polarcus has successfully completed a new NOK 350 million senior unsecured
bond. The coupon is 3 month NIBOR + 7.25% and the Company will swap the issued
amount into USD floating rate obligations, providing a current all in USD
funding cost of 7.73%. Settlement is expected to take place on 8 July 2014 and
the bonds will have a 5 year tenor. An application will be made for the bonds
to be listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
In connection with the new bond issue, the Company has repurchased USD 9.4
million of the PLCS02 bond issue. Remaining net proceeds from the bond issue
will be used to refinance the NOK 226 million outstanding under the NOK 230
million PLCS01 bond issue.
This bond issue extends Polarcus' bond maturity profile significantly and
reduces the cost of capital with an updated bond structure.
ABG Sundal Collier, DNB Markets, Pareto Securities, and Swedbank Norway are
joint managers for the bond issue, while DVB Bank SE acted as financial
advisor to the Company.
