Agrokor receives confidence from the world's major investors
Dec 01, 2009
On December 1, 2009 Agrokor d.d. priced its €400 million benchmark high yield bonds with a 10% coupon and a tenor of 7 years.
The proceeds of the issue will be used to refinance certain of Agrokor's existing indebtedness and lengthen its overall maturity profile. The Joint Bookrunners of the issue were BNP Paribas and UniCredit – Zagrebačka banka. The strong investor interest (the transaction was considerably oversubscribed) following the company's roadshow is another recognition of the strategy of Agrokor, one of the biggest companies in Central and Eastern Europe and the largest both in Croatia and the entire Adriatic region. "This success is even more significant having in mind that amid the global financial crisis Agrokor received the confidence of significant investors in the international capital markets. This has not only confirmed the value of a Croatian company in the global marketplace but made a great contribution to the overall Croatian economy",Mr. Ivica Todorić, President of the Agrokor Group said at the press conference held on December 1, 2009.
