Veolia Environnement (Paris:VIE):
This issuance includes a 650 million Euro bond maturing in March 2022 (5-year maturity) bearing a coupon of 0.672 and a 650 million Euro bond maturing in November 2026 (short 10-year maturity) bearing a coupon of 1.496 %. Both were issued at par.
The size of the transaction was initially expected to be 1 billion Euros, but an extensive investor demand led to a strong order-book, giving Veolia the opportunity to materially increase the size of the deal and obtain significantly better interest rate conditions at the same time.
The high level of oversubscription, the quality of the investor base and the outstanding conditions that were achieved are signals of the significant appreciation of Veolia's credit quality.
The proceeds of this issuance will be used for General Corporate Purposes.
