Eniro AB (publ) (“Eniro”) announced on 20 July 2018 that the company and some shareholders had drawn up a financing solution essentially entailing that Eniro’s current bank loans will be replaced by a bond loan, and Eniro will simultaneously receive a liquidity injection.
The bonds will initially be subscribed for by Beata Intressenter AB (“Beata Intressenter”) and thereafter offered to the public in Sweden and some international investors, with priority for Eniro’s Class A ordinary shareholders pro rata to their existing holding in the share register on the record date of 7 September 2018.
The bonds will be offered at a substantial discount (the offer price being approximately 32.87 per cent of the bond loan’s nominal value). The discount is made possible by Beata Intressenter’s agreement with Eniro’s lending banks to purchase the bank loans at a discount. The agreement with the banks is conditional upon inter alia the bond offering being fully underwritten by 30 July 2018.
Eniro can now announce that the guarantee is fully underwritten.
As a result, the financing solution with the banks can now be completed. The acceptance period for Beata Intressenter’s offering is planned for 11-21 September 2018.
The Board of Eniro also proposes that an Extraordinary General Meeting renew the conversion offerings to holders of preference shares or convertible bonds, respectively, on the same terms as in 2017, enabling them to convert their instruments into Class A ordinary shares and thereby participate in the new financing solution by also being able to purchase bonds with priority from Beata Intressenter.
“With a fully underwritten bond offering, the refinancing of Eniro can now go ahead and the Group can fully focus on its new business model. In September, Eniro’s Class A ordinary shareholders will be offered the new bonds with priority,” says Joachim Berner, Eniro’s Chairman.
