Pareto Securities has advised Adapta Fastigheter AB (“Adapta” or “the Company”) on their successful placement of a 3.5-year SEK 325 million senior secured bond. The proceeds from the transaction will be used to refinance debt and to finance part of the construction of Kongahälla Shopping Centre, currently one of the largest shopping mall projects in Sweden.
The bonds, maturing in May 2020, will bear a floating rate coupon of 3 months Stibor + 6.50%, with interest paid quarterly. The bonds are to be listed on Nasdaq First North within 30 days with subsequent listing on Nasdaq Stockholm within one year from the issue date.
The transaction was well received by the market and placed among predominantly Swedish investors coupled with strong demand from other Nordic and European investors. In aggregate, over 60 investors participated in the bond issue.
“The bond issue enables Adapta to expand its existing property portfolio through an efficient capital structure and financing solution well suited to the company’s ongoing project. The Company’s portfolio of modern retail and office properties is well positioned to capitalize on the growing population in the greater Gothenburg area and with the completion of Kongahälla Shopping, Adapta will be one of the leading retail property managers in Western Sweden” says Per Thörnqvist, CEO of Adapta Fastigheter AB.
