Arcadis Raises $573 Million From Bonds, Loans to Refinance

June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Arcadis NV, the largest Dutch designer of bridges and dikes, said it raised $573 million through bonds and loans to refinance debt.

Arcadis sold $110 million of 10-year 5.1 percent bonds to five U.S. investors in its first private placement, and took $245 million of term loans maturing in 2013 and 2016, the Amsterdam-based company said today in a statement. It also obtained 150 million euros ($218 million) in a five-year credit line.

The term loans will cost Arcadis about 3.5 percent after it hedging arrangements, Chief Financial Officer Renier Vree said by phone today.

Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and ING Groep NV managed the private placement while Rabobank International coordinated the bank loans, Arcadis said.

The deal will “extend the maturity profile” of Arcadis’s borrowings and provides “sufficient” financing to meet its targets “over the next few years,” Vree said in the statement.
