The bonds, maturing in November 2019, will bear a floating coupon of 3 months EURIBOR + 8.50% (paid quarterly). Listing of the bonds on Oslo Stock Exchange will take place within 1 year of settlement.
The transaction was well received by the market, as evidenced by a strong demand for the bonds from both Nordic and European investors. Altogether, over 50 investors, both institutional and private participated in the oversubscribed issue.
“We are very pleased to see the interest and support from both existing and new bond investors.
