Catella AB (publ) (“Catella” or the “Issuer”) has mandated ABG Sundal Collier AB and Nordea Bank Abp as joint bookrunners to arrange investor meetings to investigate the possibility of issuing new SEK denominated senior unsecured bonds with an expected volume of SEK 1,000 million under a framework of SEK 1,500 million with an expected tenor of 4.0 years (the “New Bonds”). Subject to market conditions, a transaction will follow.
In connection with the issue of New Bonds, Catella is offering holders of the Issuer’s outstanding senior unsecured floating rate bonds notes maturing on 15 June 2022 with an outstanding amount of SEK 750 million (ISIN: SE0009994718) (the “Existing Bonds”) to tender any and all of their Existing Bonds for purchase by the Issuer for cash (the “Tender Offer”) at a price of 101.30 per cent of the nominal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Existing Bonds will be repurchased subject to the terms and conditions described in a tender information document dated 2 March 2021 (the “Tender Information Document”).
